3:00-4:30 p.m. ET
SPEAKERS Hon. Dennis R. Dow U.S. Bankruptcy Court (W.D. Mo.); Kansas City Hon. Bruce A. Harwood U.S. Bankruptcy Court (D. N.H.); Manchester Hon. Barbara J. Houser U.S. Bankruptcy Court (N.D. Tex.); Dallas Hon. Eugene R. Wedoff U.S. Bankruptcy Court (N.D. Ill.); Chicago
ABI's Commission to Study the Reform of Chapter 11 identified more than 30 splits in case law on important issues. Such a split of authority results in delay, increased litigation costs and above all, uncertainty -- imposing a kind of "ambiguity tax" on the system, as one witness put it in testimony before the Commission. The recommendations contained in the Commission's final report, in many cases, can be implemented by judicial opinion at the bankruptcy court or court of appeals level, without need for action by Congress.
This program featuring some of the most experienced and thoughtful judges on the bench today, will assess the Commission recommendations, and identify some that might be effected soon.
