Firm Attorneys Participate in Judging Bankruptcy Moot Court Competition – February 27, 2016

Russell M. Blain and Susan Heath Sharp participated in judging at the fifth annual CKP Cup held at the University of Miami on February 27, 2016. Moot court teams from law schools in Florida, Georgia, and Alabama competed in the regional competition, which is part of the nationwide Duberstein Bankruptcy Moot Court Competition.  The CKP Cup is named in honor of three federal bankruptcy judges who serve or have served in the 11th Circuit: A. Jay Cristol of the Southern District of Florida; A. David Kahn of the Northern District of Georgia; and Alexander L. Paskay of the Middle District of Florida. This year’s Duberstein competition issues were inspired by the historic events occurring when “New” General Motors asserted that its chapter 11 plan and confirmation order discharged suits brought by thousands of drivers suing it for ignition defects.
