Junior creditors allege the parent company had illegally shuffled assets between units prior to filing so they would be beyond their reach. Caesars’s parent has defended the deals as proper and necessary to shore up its operating unit. While not legally binding, the report is expected to outline potential legal claims related to the deals, which could help drive the negotiation process forward.
