Bridget M. Dennis, an attorney in Shutts & Bowen LLP’s Tampa office, recently authored an article in the Summer 2021 edition of the Cramdown, a quarterly publication for the Tampa Bay Bankruptcy Bar Association’s membership.
In the article, titled “Displacement: Consideration of Removal and Reinstatement of a Debtor in Possession Under Section 1104 and Section 1185,” Bridget discusses case law involving Section 1104 and Section 1185, as they would apply to certain facts involving a Subchapter V debtor. She goes on to explain temporal requirements, court discretion to reinstate a debtor in possession, as well as contrasts among how courts handle the removal of a debtor based on whether or not the business is still in operation.
