    Splitting the Circuits: A Discussion of the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly Regarding Filing Chapter 11 Cases in the Ninth Circuit Rather than in Other Jurisdictions

    Thursday, February 7, 2019

    Registration and Buffet Dinner
    6:00 p.m.- 7:00 p.m.
    Program
    7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

    Speakers
    Hon. Scott H. Yun, United States Bankruptcy Judge (C.D. Cal.)
    Matthew G. Bouslog, Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP
    Whitman L. Holt, Klee, Tuchin, Bogdanoff & Stern LLP Jonathan M. Weiss, Klee, Tuchin, Bogdanoff & Stern LLP

    It is sometimes said that “it would be malpractice to file that [business bankruptcy] case here,” by which the speaker usually means in California or another jurisdiction within the Ninth Circuit. Is this true? If so, why; and if not, why? Join our panel for a systematic discussion of bankruptcy issues as to which there is a split between the Ninth Circuit and another Circuit and which may be legitimate grounds on which to favor, disfavor, or be ambivalent about filing a chapter 11 case in the Ninth Circuit.
