The Supreme Court: Appointments to and Statutory and Constitutional Interpretation by the Court in Bankruptcy Cases

Noted constitutional scholar and analyst, University of California, Irvine Law School, founding Dean,  Erwin Chemerinsky, is the keynote speaker.

Over the last several years, the Supreme Court has decided a large number of bankruptcy cases.  Almost without exception, the cases have posed questions of statutory and constitutional interpretation.  Yet the Court has been markedly inconsistent with regard to its approaches to interpretation in these cases.  What does this tell us about the Court and what does it mean for bankruptcy law?  As an added treat, Dean Chemerinsky will discuss the congressional filibuster (or its elimination) and judicial appointments.  (Tickets $90 for luncheon)

CLLA – Hon. Frank W. Koger Memorial Education Program:
Jevic– The Insider Story and The Impact on Future Chapter 11s

This panel will feature professionals from both the plaintiff and defendant sides to explain the back story of Jevic from professionals who were in the room. Although the Supreme Court case has been decided, the debate about the implications of Jevic is still somewhat of an open issue. Our panel includes three professionals who represented the Debtor and the WARN creditors, who were bypassed in the controversial Rule 9019 settlement that temporarily ended the case, as well as a well-known, practicing bankruptcy judge who was not involved in the case. The panel will discuss the potential risks Jevic presented to the bankruptcy bar and the key take-aways from the landmark case.
