Case Conclusion Date:April 3, 2006
Practice Area:Bankruptcy / Debt
Outcome:Bankruptcy Means Test decided in client's favor
Description:I acted as local counsel for NACBA as Amicus Curiae to assist fellow NACBA member and friend Scott Zauber with a creditorâ€™s objection to confirmation of the debtorâ€™s plan. We successfully argued that the Bankruptcy Means Test (introduced in the 2005 Bankruptcy Amendments) should be interpreted as fixing the disposable monthly income for over-median chapter 13 debtors rather than the actual disposable income reflected on schedules I and J of the bankruptcy petition.
