SFVBA Program Meeting, October 28, 2016: 9th Circuit Bankruptcy Appellate Panel Review

Email from Steve Fox:

To All:

Katherine Bunker from the U.S. Trustee, Raymond Aver and Roksana Moradi, all experienced bankruptcy attorneys, will knock your socks off at the next SFVBA Bankruptcy Section meeting.  They have met, planned, plotted, revised, written, rehearsed, know their parts and will awe you with their presentation and analysis of recent 9th Circuit BAP opinions. 

They will look at a lot of recent BAP opinions including the following:

–         How an attorney being potentially hit with sanctions may have a potential escape under Rule 9011.

–         Efforts to recover (post-petition) a prepetition retainer paid to litigation counsel.

–         Awarding attorneys’ fees following an unsuccessful action under §523 (contract, state law).

–         Another look at problems in chapter 20 cases and eligibility.

–         Denial of an individual’s discharge applying alter ego.

–         Another wrinkle on a claimed homestead exemption

–         And more cases.

This will not be a program which covers 40 or 50 opinions.  The panel will discuss 10 to 15 cases and will take questions.  The cases will be mixed between consumer, business and litigation.

Here are the particulars about the program:
