New Fascinating BAPCA Case from Judge Feeney
In re Phillips, 2008 WL 352396 (Bankr. D. Mass. Feb. 7, 2008) provides a fascinating discussion of the Bankruptcy Abuse and Consumer Protection Act of 2005 and its "problematic language" and the "interpretive difficulties" it has created. It discusses an enormous morass of opinions splitting on the definition of "projected disposable income" under the statute, and is quite a fun read.
