Bankruptcy and Insurance Law Manual, Fourth Edition
Availability: In stock
This fourth edition has been updated to include the latest issues confronting bankruptcy and insurance jurisprudence, including jurisdictional issues in light of the Supreme Court’s decision in Stern v. Marshall, the rise of sexual abuse-related mass tort bankruptcy proceedings in the aftermath of state-enacted “window” legislation, and the use of the Bankruptcy Code to effectuate a policy buy-back as an efficient means of resolving insured/insurer disputes. The book also updates and clarifies key insurance and bankruptcy concepts, such as the binding nature of proof-of-claim litigation, the rights and obligations under an insurance policy containing a self-insured retention where the insured is bankrupt, and the function and role of the creditors’ committee during an insured’s bankruptcy case.
