Post Stern v. Marshall: Navigating Uncertainties in Bankruptcy Claims Litigation
Arguing Issues of Fraudulent Transfer/Preference and Ponzi Clawback Claims, Waiver and Consent, and Core vs. Non-Core Proceedings
Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will provide bankruptcy litigators with a review of post-Stern case law and the impact of Stern on fraudulent transfer/preference litigation, particularly Ponzi clawback claims, the issue of consent or waiver to allow bankruptcy judges to adjudicate claims, and continuing confusion of core/non-core proceedings.
- Core vs. non-core bankruptcy proceedings
- Fraudulent transfers and preference litigation
- Ponzi clawback litigation
- Waiver and consent
The panel will review these and other key questions:
- Has Stern made it more difficult or more costly for debtors and trustees to assert counterclaims against creditors?
- Does a bankruptcy court have jurisdiction over an avoidance action if the defendant does not timely object or expressly consents to jurisdiction?
- Are there still counterclaims on which bankruptcy courts can enter final judgment?
- What steps can counsel take to address the impact of the Stern decision on current litigation?
Following the speaker presentations, you'll have an opportunity to get answers to your specific questions during the interactive Q&A.
