Resolution Authority: Dodd-Shelby Amendment

posted by Stephen Lubben

Still digesting the new Dodd-Shelby compromise, but so far the implications for resolution authority that I can see are:

  • Proceedings move from the Delaware bankruptcy court to the D.C. District Court.
  • There is a hard cap on the length of proceedings at 5 years (3 yrs. plus two 1 yr. extensions)
  • There is a new priority for employee wage claims, like the one found the Bankruptcy Code

Bankr-L is administered by one of the Credit Slips bloggers, Professor Robert M. Lawless of the University of Illinois.

After completing the information there, please also send an e-mail to Professor Lawless ([email protected]) with a short description of your professional connection to bankruptcy.
