The New Jersey Law Journal recently published an article discussing the breadth and extent of bankruptcy court jurisdiction as applied by the Third Circuit Court of Appeals. The article discusses three cases from last year: (i) Phila. Entm’t & Dev. Partners v. Dep’t of Revenue, 879 F.3d 492 (3d Cir. 2018), (ii) IMMC Corp. v. Erickson, 909 F.3d 589 (3d Cir. 2018), and (iii) In re Tribune Media Co., 902 F.3d 384 (3d Cir. 2018).
The article reminds us that the “Third Circuit held that an individual can impliedly consent to the statutory and constitutional authority of the bankruptcy court,” and that “[practitioners] should carefully evaluate the pros and cons of submitting to bankruptcy court’s jurisdiction.”
