1935 Quote by Prof. Roger Foster Analogizing The Relationship of the Supreme Court & the Bankruptcy Community to Greek Gods and Mere Mortals

I found Prof. Foster’s analogy, from Dan Bussel’s commentary, quite interesting in analogizing the relationship of the Supreme Court and the bankruptcy community to that of the Greek gods and mere mortals.

“The decisions of the Supreme Court may fall like thunderbolts from Almighty Jove. There is a blinding flash, perhaps some spectacular damage to a restricted area. Temporarily there is terror and repentance. But soon calm is restored and with it confidence that, granted a proper observance of prescribed rituals and occasional adaptation of their form to the whims of an angry god, there is likely to be very little interference with the actual plans of those who walk the earth below.”

Think of Stern v. Marshall and Wellness.
