BRADENTON, Fla. — If Jefferson County, Ala., gets the federal bankruptcy court to approve its exit plan, 10 "adversarial" suits within the Chapter 9 case, including two filed by sewer system ratepayers, will vanish.

The court's OK of the plan would also eliminate 19 cases pending before the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, as well as all disputes and appeals related to the sewer system's debt and swaps, and litigation between the county and JPMorgan, according to a modified plan of adjustment and related documents filed Wednesday.
