The Rhode Island Superior Court Business Recovery Plan is a nonliquidating receivership program that was implemented in response to business disruptions caused by COVID-19. The program permits eligible businesses to continue operations under supervised protections of the Court, such as a Court-ordered injunction against lawsuits and collection efforts. While under Court supervision, a business and its assets remain intact and the business may continue to operate pursuant to a Court-approved business plan and under the supervision of a non-liquidating receiver. The goal of the program is to offer eligible businesses a moment to breathe, after which, the business will hopefully address its debts, have the time to take advantage of federal and state loan and grant programs, and begin generating revenues again.
