Winter Issue of the ABI Law Review Addresses Pre-packaged Asbestos Cases

February 1, 2005, Alexandria, Va. — The American Bankruptcy Institute (ABI) announces the publication of the winter issue of ABI’s Law Review (Volume 12, No. 2), featuring timely articles on hot topics. Former Judge Ronald Barliant, Dimitri G. Karcazes and Anne M. Sherry of Goldberg, Kohn, Bell, Black, Rosenbloom & Moritz  (Chicago) write on strategies surrounding pre-packaged asbestos bankruptcies, predicting the recent result from the Third Circuit in Combustion Engineering.

Carmen H. Lonstein and Steven A. Domanowski of Bell, Boyd & Lloyd LLC (Chicago) continue the Supreme Court’s dialogue on the proper interest rate to apply in an article titled “Payment of Post-petition Interest to Unsecured Creditors: Federal Judgment Rate versus Contract Rate.”

Anthony Michael Sabino of Sabino & Sabino P.C. (Mineola, N.Y.) writes on another hotly contested issue in today’s cases, namely how to keep ERISA-qualified pension plans out of the reach of creditors in bankruptcy cases.

Environmental cases from 2004 are reviewed in an article by Prof. Ingrid M. Hillinger of Boston College and Prof. Michael G. Hillinger of Southern New England School of Law.

A new article on the bankruptcy reform process by Prof. John E. Matejkovic of the University of Akron and Keith Rucinski of the Office of the Chapter 13 Trustee (Akron, Ohio) addresses the coming renewed fight over a new bankruptcy bill.

ABI’s Law Review, published in conjunction with St. Johns University School of Law, is among the most respected scholarly publications in the bankruptcy community.
