Introducing our Special Guest, John Patrick Hunt

John Patrick HuntThe rest of this week will be devoted to the Elon Musk/Twitter fight as explained by our guest John Patrick Hunt (right).

John Patrick Hunt’s area of scholarly interest is law and finance.  His recent work focuses on student-loan bankruptcy; previously, his scholarship has addressed municipal bankruptcy, credit rating agencies, and mortgage securitization, transfer, and modification. Before joining the UC Davis faculty in 2009, John was Research Director of the Law and Finance Program at the Berkeley Center for Law, Business and the Economy. He has also worked as a regulatory lawyer and litigator at two major law firms and as a credit derivatives research analyst. He holds a J.D. from Yale Law School and a Master’s in Financial Engineering from the U.C. Berkeley Haas School of Business, and served as a law clerk to the Honorable Stephen F. Williams of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.

We look forward to his posts on the prospects that the Delaware Court of Chancery will order Musk to specifically perform.
