These pages collect the work of students from Professor Kuney’s Reorganizations and Workouts seminar. That course consists of an examination of reorganization under chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code from petition date to confirmation of a plan of reorganization or other disposition as well as coverage of the use of extensions, compositions, workouts and other non-bankruptcy methods of adjusting the rights or parties to business transactions. Students, working in small groups, select a chapter 11 case and research it, including reviewing all substantive documents on its docket. They then summarize the procedural and substantive history of the case in a report that contains hyperlinks to pdf versions of the source documents upon which the report is based. The resulting case histories are useful in understanding the actual practice of corporate reorganization in chapter 11.
