The April 2014 newsletter of the American Bankruptcy Institute’s Unsecured Trade Creditors Committee includes an article written by Bayard bankruptcy associate Evan T. Miller. The article, titled “The Third Circuit Draws a Line in the Sand on New Value in Friedman’s,” discusses the Third Circuit’s recent In re Friedman’s, 738 F.3d 547 (3d Cir. 2013) decision. The decision affirms prior rulings by both the U.S. Bankruptcy and District Courts for the District of Delaware, which held that the petition date should be the cutoff for analyzing new value in an adversary proceeding, an issue dividing bankruptcy courts nationwide. Evan’s article can be seen here.
The American Bankruptcy Institute is the largest multi-disciplinary, non-partisan organization dedicated to research and education on matters related to insolvency. It is also the nation’s leading provider of quality bankruptcy educational programs.
Evan, who has been with Bayard’s bankruptcy group since 2009, has had two other articles published in ABI publications, including the ABI Journal and the ABI Young & New Members Committee Newsletter. Beyond his involvement in the ABI, he serves as an executive committee member for several professional associations, including Turnaround Management Association NextGen’s Philadelphia Chapter, the Delaware Bankruptcy American Inn of Court, the Delaware State Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Section, and the Philadelphia Bar Association’s Bankruptcy Committee.
