What is the “new normal” for U.S. bankruptcy courts in the era of COVID-19? I am moderating a panel today at 1 Eastern time that will explore that question from the perspectives of a judge, a clerk, a practitioner, and a technologist.

Produced by the American Bankruptcy Institute, The Bankruptcy Court and COVID-19 will look at changes in the process and practice of bankruptcy courts across the U.S. We’ll discuss how courts have adapted to the crisis and used technology to keep their dockets moving.

We’ll also consider what’s ahead, as bankruptcy courts prepare to handle an anticipated influx of filings.

Today’s panelists are:

  • Hon. Hannah L. Blumenstiel, Judge, U.S. Bankruptcy Court (N.D. Cal.), San Francisco.
  • Una M. O’Boyle, Clerk, U.S. Bankruptcy Court (D. Del.), Wilmington.
  • Brian L. Shaw, Partner, Fox Rothschild LLP, Chicago.
  • Matt Wapnick, Director of Business Development, CourtCall LLC, Los Angeles.

Register here.
