On June 8, 2016 by Schnader

With Ronald Mann, the Albert E. Cinelli Enterprise Professor of Law at Columbia University, the Honorable Timothy K. Lewis co-authored the op-ed “Courts Should Review Bankruptcy Equitable Mootness Doctrine,” published in The Legal Intelligencer on June 8. The article concerns a decision by the U.S. Supreme court not to review “equitable” mootness, a rule under which courts dismiss challenges to consummated Chapter 11 plans as “equitably” moot.
