Bow Ties: Who Wore It Best?
"Every year, the members of the Central District Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys Association recognizes an attorney, trustee, or judge for their exemplary efforts affecting consumer debtors. The award presented is the Calvin Ashland Award. This year's honor was awarded to Chapter 13 Trustee of the year, Kathy A. Dockery. Aside from the incredible honors, I noted the scuttle but about bow ties being appropriate for this occasion."

United States First Circuit, 11/02/2010
In re Net-Valazquez, --- F.3d --- (1st Cir. 2010)
Creditor's garnishment of funds affirmed as preference: 1) because the creditor neglected to squarely raise its arguments before the bankruptcy court, it has waived them; and 2) the equities do not heavily preponderate in favor of allowing the new arguments.

Kirschner v. KPMG LLP, No. 151
In a derivative action against accounting firms by the litigation trustee for allegedly aiding and abetting fraud, in response to questions certified by the Second Circuit, the court declined to alter its precedent relating to in pari delicto, and imputation and the adverse interest exception, as it would have to do to bring about the expansion of third-party liability sought by plaintiffs here.
