Recent Developments in Bankruptcy Law: Navigating the Chapter 11 Landscape in 2017
A number of significant developments in bankruptcy law, which gained the attention and interest of bankruptcy experts and practitioners, have occurred earlier this year. Among these notable updates are the imposed sanctions of certain bankruptcy courts to some of the most prominent banks in the United States, such as the Bank of America, and the recently decided Czyzewski v. Jevic Holding Corp., which emphasized that structured dismissals under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code must follow ordinary priority rules unless affected creditors consent.
In addition, recent developments in the Section 546(e) of the Bankruptcy Code have spurred during the second quarter of the year. The most notable is the Supreme Court’s intent to review the scope and applicability of Section 546(e)’s Safe Harbor provision. This is following the opposing interpretations of the said provision which created a gap between the circuits.
