The MSBA's Bankruptcy Section Presents


"The Absolute Priority Rule in Individual Chapter 11 Cases: Deciding What Congress Meant and Practical Implications for Practitioners"

Two recent cases from the Fourth and Tenth Circuits move the weight of precedent, both in number and seniority of courts, even further toward preservation of the absolute priority rule in individual chapter 11 cases. The presentation will examine both sides of the debate and discuss what the current state of the law means for debtors and creditors.
