SFVBA Program This Friday October 12, 2018

Email from Steve Fox:

Dear All:

The bankruptcy section is back for its 2018-2019 season.  The first program up is a really unique program.  It will exercise our brains and give us some good food for thought, and good stuff to use in our law practices.  Daniel J. Bussell of Klee, Tuchin (and a law professor at UCLA), Whitman Holt (a partner at Klee Tuchin) and Judge Barash will speak on a small number of selected appellate cases.

One of those cases will remind those of you when you should be requesting attorneys’ fees of the other side.  For all bankruptcy attorneys, a second case will consider the problem of filing claims based on time barred debts.  A third case the panel intends to discuss is ideal for those attorneys in chapter 11 practice whether you are on the debtor’s or the creditor’s side.  In this third case, a party has confirmed a plan and your client wants to appeal, to block the plan.  Equitable mootness gets in the way most of the time. The panel will look at a recent 9th Circuit case addressing equitable mootness (in the context of a channeling injunction).

The panel will address five cases, more or less, meaning that instead of a quick 30 second blurb, there will be detailed discussion about each case and its issues.  The quality of the presenters is very high.  The value of the content even higher.  You can have lunch and exercise your brain all at the same time.  I encourage all of you to sign up and to attend the program.
