In Print: Available for Distribution

(update of the 2007 version to incorporate the December 2007 bankruptcy rules amendments)

Building on the 1992 first edition, this guide pools the knowledge of bankruptcy judges and clerks of court experienced in handling mega-cases in a written resource for others. It describes the general time line of a mega-case, issues that are likely to arise, and how other judges have approached those issues. The revised guide reflects management strategies currently set by statute, case law, local rules and general orders, and employed by individual judges. It expands coverage of topics that have gained prominence since the guide was first published. Exhibits discussed in the guide including sample procedures and guidelines, orders, and other materials are available for download.

Note: the Exhibits are only available online and are not included in the printed guide.
