Marcus Cole and I have been working on an article on the Anna Nicole Smith bankruptcy case and the negative incentives it creates for forum-shopping in bankruptcy. I’ll be posting our working paper in the next few days.
In the meantime, Marcus, Ron Rotunda, Todd Brown, and I have filed a amicus brief in the case as to whether the issues that arose in the bankruptcy case are “core” or “non-core” matters. The brief is available on Ron’s website here for those who are interested.
Oops, I forgot to list myself as a signatory on the amicus in the original post.
