May 5, 2020

Kirby Aisner & Curley LLP represented Chapter 11 Good Noodles Inc. d/b/a Sgoglini, a manufacturer of high quality artisanal pasta based out of the Hudson Valley, New York.

On November 18, 2019, Good Noodles closed on the sale of its Assets to De Angelis USA Corp. 

Following the sale, a Liquidating Chapter 11 Plan was filed and confirmed by Chief Judge Cecelia G. Morris on May 5, 2020.
