A very large, distressed, tax-exempt bond fund purchased all of the outstanding bonds issued on behalf of a then defunct urban nursing home chain for less than 1.5% of par. The bonds had been issued to finance the purchase of three large nursing homes by a university hospital system. All of the nursing homes were closed within three years of the acquisition. Prior to selling the bonds, the bond trustee had tried unsuccessfully to build a legal case to hold the university hospital system directly responsible for repaying the bonds. HMP was engaged to assist counsel in building a case demonstrating that the university hospital system was directly responsible for the failure of the nursing homes through its gross negligence.
