Constructive Trust And Other Non-Bankruptcy Law Rights And Remedies: Do You Have More Than A General Unsecured Claim?
Reflecting the fundamental bankruptcy principle providing for equality of treatment of creditors, the definition of ‘claim’ under section 101(5) of the Bankruptcy Code is extremely broad. At the same time, there is a fundamental bankruptcy principle that a debtor’s rights and interests in property are defined by non-bankruptcy law. Sometimes these principles are in conflict. The program will discuss some of these conflicts, including:
* Constructive and resulting trusts
* Escrows and express trusts
* Specific performance, reformation, and rescission
* Environmental liabilities
