Many things precipitate chapter 11 reorganization cases. Frequently, it's a response to a judgment creditor's efforts to enforce its money judgement. Those efforts interfere with customer relations, cash flow and the judgment debtor's economic survival. Smart judgment creditors realize that crushing their judgment debtor won't get them paid. Judgement debtors and creditors may not agree on what is destructive. That's where a chapter 11 reorganization case comes in. It stops the enforcement efforts while the judgment debtor attempts to reorganize.
