The Delaware Bankruptcy Court recently held that a third amendment to a lease agreement entered into for the purpose of leasing a second building could not be severed from the original lease agreement; and the debtor was not allowed to reject the lease on that second building under section 365 of the Bankruptcy Code. In In re Contract Research Solutions, Inc., (the decision can be found here) the debtor, Allied Research International, Inc., had originally leased one building from a third party, Golden Glades Associates, LLP. Allied and Golden amended the lease agreement twice, each time relating to the first building. A few years later, the lease agreement was amended a third time for purposes of leasing a second building located in the same building complex. The third amendment contained terms that applied to the first building, expanded the definition of premises to include both buildings, and provided that the terms of the original lease remained in full force and effect, except where modified by the third amendment. Allied commenced bankruptcy proceedings on March 26, 2012 and eventually ceased use of the second building, vacated it, and sent the keys to Golden. Golden quickly sent the keys back to Allied.
