Government Notches 4 Victories, Debtors Win Once, in Fights over PPP ‘Loans’

Government often wins by arguing that the Small Business Act prohibits injunctions forcing the SBA to consider granting ‘PPP’ loans without regard to whether the applicant is a chapter 11 debtor.
Court: 

Fifth Circuit Bars Debtors from Receiving ‘PPP’ Loans Under the CARES Act

In a rapid-fire appeal, the Fifth Circuit ruled that the Small Business Act bars bankruptcy courts from enjoining the SBA.
Court: 

Debtors and the SBA Fight to a Draw Last Week on PPP ‘Loans’

Courts still have no consensus about debtors’ right to receive PPP ‘loans’ under the Cares Act.

Ninth Circuit Criticizes the Supreme Court’s Kelly v. Robinson

Discovery sanctions are dischargeable under Section 523(a)(7), even when incorporated into a bar disciplinary suspension.
Court: 

Last Week, the Government Went 2 for 3 in Defeating Debtor’s Demands for PPP Loans

Courts are divided on whether PPP litigation is ‘core’ or not.
Court: 

Farmers in Chapter 12 Don’t Qualify for PPP ‘Loans,’ Milwaukee Judge Rules

A PPP ‘loan’ under the Cares Act isn’t a ‘grant,’ thus the government isn’t barred from discriminating against a bankrupt under Section 525(a).
