The Main Street Acquisition Corp Lawsuit

Recently a Main Street Acquisition Corp lawsuit was brought against the government for allowing a company to acquire an unneeded small business and later be acquired by another. This is an unfortunate situation in that the government made a decision based on a clause in an original Act. The entire purpose of such lawsuits is to protect the tax payers from corporations that take advantage of the system.

Main Street Acquisition Corp Lawsuit

The original Act in question is Section 1201(b) of the Organic Act. It specifically states that no tax may be imposed on an acquired business under any circumstances. Subsequently the government decided not to impose taxes on Main Street. Yet in the lawsuit that was subsequently brought the plaintiffs were able to recover most if not all of their lost losses.

If you are one of those people who feel as though the government’s Main Street plan is unfair then you might want to consider filing a lawsuit against them. There are actually two lawsuits that you can file with the United States Congress. The first is brought by the United States House of Representatives. The suit is challenging the method in which the government conducted the Main Street Plan analysis. The other lawsuit is brought by the United States Senate.

The problems with this particular process begin with the passage of H.R. Rept. 915, which is the Main Street Consolidation Act.

This was passed by the United States Congress in 2021. Among other things the act provides that the Secretary of the Treasury shall conduct an analysis of any corporation which is considered to be an acquisitions transaction under the Act. The process shall then determine whether or not the acquisition is in line with the requirements and regulations set forth by the United States Secretary of the Treasury.

If the analysis determines that the transaction is not in order then it shall be disapproved.

The disapproval would remain until after the acquisition is completed. The purpose of the Main Street Acquisition Corporation Act is to prevent mergers and acquisitions that will have a negative effect on the overall economic structure of the country. The goal is to promote the economic health of America. The Act was designed to eliminate any unnecessary barriers that may result from mergers and acquisitions in order to create more opportunities for American business owners.

However, the United States Congress has allowed the Secretary of the Treasury to temporarily halt the Main Street Process so that the review can occur.

The Temporary Restructuring Order was released in November of 2021. At that time the corporation could file a lawsuit against the United States government if the process was not resumes within three months. In a case like this the corporation would present evidence that the process is being unfair to them. The lawsuit could challenge the manner in which the Main Street Processes is being conducted, the lack of corporate information or data in the system leading up to the approval of the application, and the costs that have been placed on the corporation by the United States Secretary of the Treasury.

The corporation has until November thirty-first to cure the deficiencies in the Main Street Process.

If the corporation fails to cure the deficiencies of the United States government can bring a suit against the corporation. The lawsuit would be brought by one of two attorneys that are assigned by the United States Attorney’s office. One attorney will work on a contingency basis meaning that he or she will receive no money unless the corporation wins its lawsuit. The second attorney will receive a percentage of the winnings. The third attorney is a partner in the venture and therefore is entitled to a percentage of the winnings as well.

It is possible that the corporation has filed a lawsuit already, however it is not public record. It is possible that there is only a “memorandum of understanding” in place or that the corporation has yet to file their suit. If there is a lawsuit already filed then it is possible that the corporation has already lost the opportunity to raise Main Street acquisition loans under the existing federal law. For example, the shareholders of the corporation have already voted to approve the transaction. Once the shareholders approve the transaction, then the United States government must go through a process to get approval from all state insurance regulators and then it must go through the same process again for the corporation to raise the funds it needs to cover the expenses and pay the lenders under the MIPL.
