Last month I noted a paper (by Bob Lawless (IL), Angie Littwin (Texas), Katie Porter (Iowa), John Pottow (Michigan), Debb Thorne (Ohio U.), and Elizabeth Warren (Harvard)) that empirically assesses the recently reformed bankruptcy code. Given all the scholarly activity it ignited, an update is warranted.
The original Lawless et al. paper stimulated a critique from Rafael Pardo (Seattle). Lawless et al. respond to Pardo's critique (at: 83 Amer. Bankruptcy L.J. 47-61). Finally, to push the debate further, Pardo responds to the Lawless et al. response here.
