No CLE - ABI-Live: It’s Never Really Over, Even When It’s Over: Analyzing The Limits Of Bankruptcy Jurisdiction

Although Congress expanded the power of the bankruptcy courts to decide matters that were “related to” bankruptcy cases four decades ago, the United States Supreme Court’s decisions in Stern and Wellness have created uncertainty about bankruptcy court jurisdiction with which lower courts still struggle, and any litigator handling ancillary matters that relate to bankruptcy estates must understand and analyze jurisdictional strategies for the benefit of their clients. The webinar's panelists will discuss key issues regarding the limitations of bankruptcy jurisdiction, which may include frequently litigated issues concerning “related to” jurisdiction, consent for the bankruptcy court to issue final orders, the bankruptcy court’s power to enjoin litigation against nondebtors, the impact of jury demands, standards and strategies in withdrawing the reference of matters from the district court, and issues concerning the appellate process. Recent case of interest will be discussed.
