A federal court has denied Wells Fargo Bank’s request to seize assets of Country Coach LLC, according to a report in the Register-Guard.
A U.S. bankruptcy judge decided Thursday (Feb. 12) that it’s too early in the process to allow the financially troubled RV maker to be liquidated.
For now, the ruling allows Junction City, Ore.-based Country Coach to survive and try to reach a deal with a Los Angeles private equity firm interested in buying the company.
Wells Fargo sued Country Coach last month in U.S. District Court, seeking payment on $8.5 million overdue from the Junction City RV manufacturer.
The plant has been idle since December, leaving about 500 workers jobless.
