Anna Nicole Smith, the Constitution, and Bankruptcy

posted by Alan White

To all law profs out there who plan to attend next week's Association of American Law Schools annual meeting, be sure not to miss the Creditors' and Debtors' Rights section program Saturday morning at 8:30.   The theme of the program:  "Marathon at 30:  A Retrospective on Bankruptcy Court Jurisdiction in the Shadow of Article III."  Bankruptcy Judge J. Rich Leonard will moderate a discussion featuring Douglas Baird, Susan Block-Lieb and Troy McKenzie.  The panelists will consider, among other issues, the confusion sown by the Supreme Court in the process of resolving claims to the estate of Anna Nicole Smith's billionaire husband in Stern v. Marshall.  For some background on the case, see CS posts here, here and here

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.
