This session will address the bench's and bar’s current conversation on if, how and when to conduct trials online. Particular emphasis will be paid to testimonial, documentary and legal decision-making issues germane to bankruptcy trials.

The era of COVID-19 is also the era of protests and renewed demands for racial justice in small and larger cities, historic wildfires and weather events due to climate change, and economic-relief packages in Congress at a stalemate as we approach the November election.

ABA: Gender & Judging: Does the Gender of the Judge Matter in Bankruptcy Court Adjudications?

For two years this group has studied the influence of a judge’s gender on the processing and outcomes in bankruptcy cases. Leveraging several studies in non-bankruptcy cases on whether gender influences judicial decision making, this study has looked at 837 student loan discharge opinions and compared the outcomes of those cases based on the gender of the judge and the gender of the debtor. The results demonstrate a statistically significant difference in the way men and women decide such cases.

At its most basic level, the impact has been devastating financially. The restructuring of a healthcare entity, whether in or out of court, raises unique and significant issues, in large part because federal and state governments pay for the bulk of medical care in the United States and the industry is one of the most heavily regulated industries in the nation.
