Judge Allan L. Gropper

Memorandum of Decision and Order Signed on 7/7/2009 Re: Holding that the purported termination of the debtors' insurance based on the "cesser clause" of the Clubs' policies was ineffective by virtue of 11 U.S.C. Section 541(c)(1)(B) and that any action to validate such termination would be void as a violation of the automatic stay of Section 362 of the Bankruptcy Code. The Trustee is directed to settle an appropriate order on two days' notice providing for further injunctive relief enforcing the stay. Pending the entry of such an order, the preliminary relief contained in this Court's order to show cause dated June 26, 2009, as amended on June 30, 2009 is continued. SO-ORDERED.
