Emory Bankruptcy Developments Journal


The Comment analyzes the various areas of bankruptcy court jurisdiction with a specific emphasis on postconfirmation 'related to' jurisdiction in chapter 11 cases. The Comment also provides recommendations for courts and legislators to consider in clarifying the scope of postconfirmation 'related to' jurisdiction. These recommendations include the Supreme Court granting a writ of certiorari to provide guidance to the lower courts on postconfirmation jurisdiction, a statutory amendment, and the revision of the current jurisdictional scheme to create Article III bankruptcy judges.
