The article reports the ruling of a bankruptcy court for the Southern District of New York that the sale of the Adelphia assets to Time Warner Cable and Comcast can proceed without a bankruptcy reorganization plan. The ruling means that the companies can conduct the sale without the blessing of creditors. The sale is expected to result in a complicated three-way trade between the companies that will switch the cable provider for an estimated 10 percent of American cable subs.
