Federal courts issued a number of interesting bankruptcy opinions during this Survey period. These opinions address challenging issues, such as the dischargeability of student loans and selecting the appropriate valuation date in Chapter 11 cram-downs. This Survey covers a handful of these cases, including three decisions by the U.S. Supreme Court. The authors have selected these decisions based on their importance to future insolvency practice, and we hope this Survey is useful to consumer and business bankruptcy practitioners alike.
