In this illuminating work, Ronald J. Mann offers readers a comprehensive study of bankruptcy cases in the Supreme Court of the United States. He provides detailed case studies based on the Justices' private papers on the most closely divided cases, statistical analysis of variation among the Justices in their votes for and against effective bankruptcy relief, and new information about the appearance in opinions of citations taken from party and amici briefs. By focusing on cases that have neither a clear answer under the statute nor important policy constraints, the book unveils the decision-making process of the Justices themselves - what they do when they are left to their own devices. It should be read by anyone interested not only in the jurisprudence of bankruptcy, but also in the inner workings of the Supreme Court.
Congress rejected reform because the Commission did not expose a bankruptcy ring. This book describes a bankruptcy ring that victimized creditors to benefit a fraudulent bankrupt.
Author: Robert S. Palmer
Bankruptcies impose a social cost approaching $125 billion a year on the nation. We all pay higher prices to offset bad debt losses & higher taxes because bad debt expenses reduce income tax revenues. The Commission on Bankruptcy Laws reported that the system is dominated by rings that embrace judges & lawyers specializing in bankruptcy. It recommended stripping bankruptcy judges of their administrative duties. Congress rejected reform because the Commission did not expose a bankruptcy ring. This book describes a bankruptcy ring that victimized creditors to benefit a fraudulent bankrupt. The author believes that a San Jose bankruptcy judge acted illegally when he continued to administer a bankruptcy estate after the bankrupt admitted net worth of $685,000. After raising a constitutional issue in bankruptcy court, the author was frustrated by a pattern of judicial cover-up by over 50 judges & justices who affirmed the orders of the bankruptcy court. In every bankruptcy, the bankruptcy judge violates the constitutional separation of powers. In 1794 the Supreme Court invalidated a law that imposed administrative duties on the courts. This hard-hitting, well-documented book reveals what's broken & how it can be fixed. It advocates drastic reform of our bankruptcy, judicial & legal systems. For orders call Bookmasters 800-247-6555.
