Intersection of State Court Causes of Action in Bankruptcy

State law and bankruptcy law intersect in any number of ways in any given bankruptcy case. This panel will focus on a few of the issues that arise in this context and discuss recent case law, as well as practice tips and strategy. More specifically, the panelists will cover the abstention doctrine and how bankruptcy courts analyze various state law claims under that doctrine; the potential impact of a bankruptcy case on divorce proceedings, including automatic stay and discharge issues; and the limitations on pursuing state court claims, such as standing, collateral estoppel and third-party releases. We hope you will join us and contribute your questions and experiences to the conversation.
