Reinvigorating Chapter 11: The Case For Reinstating The Stock-For-Debt Exception In Bankruptcy, Michelle A. Cecil

Faculty Publications

This Article suggests that such a proposal will harmonize the bankruptcy policy of rehabilitating financially distressed corporations with the tax policy of ensuring that true economic income is subject to federal income taxation.27 Parts II and III of this Article will trace the common law evolution of the stock-for-debt exception and its statutory codification in 1980, with particular emphasis on the stated policy justifications for the exception. Part IV will then examine the history of the repeal of the stock-for-debt exception, demonstrating that the repeal was the result of hasty political maneuvering rather than reasoned legislative decision-making. In Part ...


Introduction To The Articles Presented By Three Rising Stars In Bankruptcy Scholarship, Samuel Bufford Jan 2000

Introduction To The Articles Presented By Three Rising Stars In Bankruptcy Scholarship, Samuel Bufford

Journal Articles

Bankruptcy law is one of the fundamental legal structures necessary to the functioning of a market economy. In the common law tradition of the United States and England, bankruptcy law dates back to 1542. Bankruptcy law's origins are even more ancient, with roots extending back to at least the Hammaurabi Code and the Law of Moses. In the transition to market economies and Western-style legal systems in Central and Eastern Europe, the development of a viable bankruptcy law is one of the first priorities. This, the United States bankruptcy law that forms the background for this symposium is central ...


The Wasted Sacrifice Of Lessors' Lost Profit Claims In Bankruptcy, Marie T. Reilly Jan 2000

The Wasted Sacrifice Of Lessors' Lost Profit Claims In Bankruptcy, Marie T. Reilly

Journal Articles

Bankruptcy Code section 502(b)(6) sets the maximum allowable amount of a real property lessor's claim for damages arising for breach of lease in a tenant's bankruptcy case. To the extent a lessor's damages claim under nonbankruptcy law exceeds the maximum amount, it is disallowed. The implicit premise for such disallowance is that real property lessors' damages claims are less worthy of respect in bankruptcy than other claims for damages against the debtor. Real property leases are legally distinct from leases of personal property or other contractual relationships that allocate property rights. But, it does not ...

Bankruptcy Reorganization: Legal Dynamics Associated With Economic Discontinuity, Young Rock Noh Jan 2000

Bankruptcy Reorganization: Legal Dynamics Associated With Economic Discontinuity, Young Rock Noh

LLM Theses and Essays

This thesis attempts to discover the factors leading to such failures and to propose a cure. It argues that the basic structure of Chapter 11 of the Code, the debtor in possession structure, is one of the essential factors causing such a high rate of failure. The thesis further asserts that it is possible to reduce the rate of unsuccessful reorganization if the bankruptcy court exercises its power of case management more actively and expeditiously. For example, the court can screen the debtors' filing for relief before the reorganization case proceeds too far. Chapter II of this thesis examines the ...


Insider Guaranties In Bankruptcy: A Framework For Analysis, Marshall E. Tracht Jan 2000

Insider Guaranties In Bankruptcy: A Framework For Analysis, Marshall E. Tracht

Articles & Chapters

This article presents an economic analysis of insider guaranties in small business finance and bankruptcy, explaining their role in the panoply of legal and contractual devices used to control financial agency costs. It then uses this model to examine two areas of concern in the bankruptcy treatment of insider guaranties (the Deprizio preference problem and the enforceability of springing and exploding guaranties) and to explore some of the wider implications of insider guaranties for small business bankruptcy. Building on the fact that insider guaranties are typically used less to increase the assets available for repayment of the debt than to ...

Will Exploding Guaranties Bomb?, Marshall E. Tracht

Articles & Chapters

Springing and exploding guaranties - insider guaranties that will become due ifand when a borrower files for bankruptcy - have become popular as "bankruptcy-proofing" devices, yet there is little case law or literature on their enforceability. This article reviews the limited existing law on these bankruptcy-contingent guaranties and examines some of the arguments against their enforceabiltiy that can be expected to be made in the future.

The purpose of the present thesis is to let French lawyers know which step they need to take in order to best assist their client in securing a more solid investment. Lenders want to be protected.
