ABI RELEASES THORNY ISSUES IN CONSUMER BANKRUPTCY CASES

November 3, 2008, Alexandria, Va. - Based on a series of successful Webinars that discussed consumer bankruptcy topics, the American Bankruptcy Institute's Thorny Issues in Consumer Bankruptcy Cases addresses some of the controversial issues arising in today's consumer bankruptcy practice. The authors, ABI Resident Scholar Prof. Jack Williams and Susan Seabury of BDO Seidman LLP, provide a compilation of materials that were presented during a series of Webinars held in 2007 and 2008, covering such topics as getting the discharge, paying debtor and creditor counsel in chapter 13, credit counseling and debtor education, and post-confirmation modifications.

Thorny Issues in Consumer Bankruptcy Cases examines the sometimes ambiguous path of consumer bankruptcy practice in the wake of BAPCPA by focusing on the recurring 'thorny' issues that do not have clearly defined answers, presenting both sides to the arguments. In addition, overturned decisions are presented to help practitioners understand the development of the current positions.
