During the Survey period, federal courts at all levels were busy rendering important bankruptcy decisions. These cases arise in both the consumer and business context. The authors have selected decisions on legal topics that should be of interest to both consumer and business bankruptcy lawyers. This Survey is not intended to be an exhaustive coverage of all bankruptcy decisions since last year’s survey. However, we hope the reader will appreciate how courts are approaching some hard issues and perhaps spot a trend or two as cases wind their way on appeal.
