Select from Thursday afternoon concurrent tracks: Business Track includes discussions on the use of in-house counsel as witnesses; the trends of adequate protection in the use, sale or lease of property of the estate; what tactics or strategies should be considered if Chapter 11 is not the preferred alternative; and recent Chapter 11 plan-related developments including substantive consolidation, “per plan” versus “per debtor” considerations, and third-party releases. Consumer Track includes discussions on Jevic in the consumer context; turnover after In Re Cowan, 849 F. 3rd 943; the latest on the loan modification program proposed for Texas; and how to deal and not deal with exemption issues  pre-bankruptcy.
