A New York state judge has ruled that a group of TriMark USA lenders can proceed with a bid to unwind the food-service supplier’s $427 million pandemic refinancing package, which the plaintiffs said allegedly dislodged them from a top spot in the line for repayment.

The ruling, entered Monday, allowed TriMark’s first-lien lenders to press claims for declaratory judgment and breach of contract against TriMark and its equity owners, The Blackstone Group Inc. and Centerbridge Partners.
