Shaya Rochester quoted by Law360 in Reaction to SCOTUS Bankruptcy Ruling


Law360 quoted Curtis partner Shaya Rochester in its reaction story to the Supreme Court’s unanimous decision on May 4 to limit debt plan appeals in Bullard v. Hyde Park Savings Bank.

Mr. Rochester said “the Supreme Court struck an appropriate balance here, holding that an order denying plan confirmation is not a final, immediately appealable order, unless the case is dismissed as a result. As the Court said, 'It ain’t over till it’s over,' as plan proponents can frequently amend the plan to address the reasons for denial of confirmation. This approach is almost always more efficient than a costly appellate process. Of course, appeals may be appropriate in certain circumstances, in which cases interlocutory appeals can still be requested. In any event, another circuit split has been resolved for bankruptcy practitioners.”
