Get the Jock Jams going – it’s game time! Selection Sunday may be a couple of weeks away, but the Weil Bankruptcy Blog’s annual March Madness Tournament is here. We may have ridden the bench last year, but, as promised, we are back on the court, fired up, and ready to go! (Incidentally, we realize now that our “bench” and “court” puns apply equally to sports and to the judiciary. Though we suppose if this were the NBA, we could go so far as to make a [David] Stern reference. But we digress.) With your help, in the weeks leading up to our March Madness series, we’ve compiled quotes from decisions that you, dear fans, would vote into the Bankruptcy Hall of Fame.
In deciding which submissions made the cut, our elite Selection Panel debated which quotes from published bankruptcy-related decisions were, among other things, the most hilarious, most shocking, most literary, or most creative. (Clearly, most legally significant was not one of the key players this year – we were looking for lighter reading!)
