What are common motions in a Chapter 11 case?

Common Chapter 11 motions fall into two categories: those made by the debtor or trustee, and those made by a creditor. Common debtor- or trustee-initiated motions include: permission to spend cash collateral and permission to obtain a new loan by granting either superpriority or secured status to a lender. Common creditor-initiated motions include: relief from the automatic stay, conversion of the Chapter 11 case into a Chapter 7 case and dismissal of the case. Motions concerning contracts in progress (executory contracts and unexpired leases) are also quite common.
