This page includes documents from several cases related to the debtor’s eligibility to file a Chapter 9 case, including documents from one case that was dismissed based on the debtor’s ineligibility. The Jefferson County documents explicate the issues that can arise in interpreting a state’s authorization statute, as does Stockton document number 426. The Stockton documents also are particularly helpful with respect to the “good-faith” issue.
The page also includes a review of state authorization statutes and opinions.
Eligibility is one of several Chapter 9 Online Repository categories.
