"Lawyers React To Justices’ Ruling On Bankruptcy Court Power," Law360

May 28, 2015

Law360 published comments from attorneys across the country on the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling that overturned a Seventh Circuit decision that held that bankruptcy courts have the authority to make final decisions on certain legal claims that help liquidate a debtor or adjudicate a bankruptcy proceeding. In response to the decision in Wellness International Network Ltd. v. Sharif John K. Rezac tells Law360 that “allowing parties to disregard by consent Article III restrictions on the powers of the judiciary is a mistake.” He adds, “the Court’s ruling today embraces a dangerously cavalier view of the importance of Constitutional separation of federal powers, further on display in the majority’s sarcastic response to the dissent’s concerns over the Constitution’s system of checks and balances.” Law360 subscribers may read the full article online.
