Nunc No More? Retroactive Relief in Bankruptcy Post-Acevedo

Event Description

Online registration is closed.  To attend, please email Tram Nguyen at

Remote participation only.

This program is sponsored by the MSBA Bankruptcy Section.  There will be a brief Section business meeting prior to the CLE.

Following the Supreme Court’s February 2020 decision in Roman Catholic Archdiocese of San Juan v. Acevedo Feliciano, federal courts around the country have begun re-evaluating the granting of nunc pro tunc relief to litigants.  This presentation will examine how the decision in Acevedo has impacted bankruptcy proceedings in particular by examining subsequent bankruptcy case law as courts wrestle with implications of the Acevedo decision.

The presentation will also briefly discuss the recently proposed FRESH START through Bankruptcy Act of 2021, which, if enacted, would make certain student loans dischargeable after ten years.
