Prof. Braucher Moderates Panel on Recent Supreme Court ruling in Ransom v. FIA Card Services

On January 13, 2011, Prof. Braucher was the bankruptcy expert who moderated a panel discussion on the potential impact of Ransom v. FIA Card Services, decided by the U.S. Supreme Court on January 11, 2011. This case affirmed a lower court ruling that a debtor in bankruptcy who does not make loan or lease payments may not take the deduction that is otherwise available for ownership of a vehicle. The media teleconference, sponsored by the American Bankruptcy Institute (ABI), can be listened to here. For more information about the case, the other speakers, and the ABI, see the announcement here.
