The Court has been provided with a presentation for chambers staff from the Federal Judicial Center on the new Bankruptcy Reform Act. Judge Waites has viewed the ninety-minute program and believes it would be a useful tool to introduce the bar and staff to the important changes in the new law. Fifty minutes focuses on consumer issues, with discussion topics such as means testing, debtor education, and credit counseling. The remaining portion addresses business issues such as small business provisions and individual chapter 11 filings. We have been informed that dissemination of the taped copy of the program is authorized, therefore, Judge Waites is providing the tape to BANKLA for distribution. If you are interested in viewing the tape, please contact Aimee Hiers at or 252-5646 (e-mail is preferred). If you need further information, you may contact Judge Waites’ law clerk, Tammi Hellwig, at 253-3751.
