Takata Has Moved for a Futures Representative, But Who Are The Constituents?

Interesting topics are raised by a motion by Takata for appointment of Roger Frankel as a futures representative in Takata’s chapter 11 case. The case arose from Takata paying out massive amounts to pay for products recalls demanded by governments and car companies.

In the motion, Takata refers to appointment of Mr. Frankel  to advocate for future personal injury claimants. That proposed as counsel raises interesting topics since the car companies seem to be much larger claimants for product recalls, but they also likely will be claiming claims against Takata in future personal injury cases.  In a related view, other manufacturing entities may well sued when wrecks happen. And, Medicare and health insurers may assert liens against funds paid out to personal injury claimants. For which interests can/should Mr. Frankel advocate?
