Compliance with Nonbankruptcy Law by Trustee or Debtor in Possession
Alan N. Resnick;and Henry J. Sommer
The chapter examines 28 U.S.C. § 959(b), which requires a debtor in possession or a Chapter 11 trustee to follow all applicable state laws regulating the "carrying on" of a business. The chapter reviews considerable case law under this section in a variety of regulatory areas, including: health care, residential housing, going out-of-business sales, corporate governance, and environmental law. Further, the chapter thoroughly discusses the relationship between enforcement of compliance with state law and relief from the automatic stay.
Chapter 10 concludes by discussing the obligation of debtors in possession or Chapter 11 trustees to file tax returns and pay the postpetition taxes assessed against the debtor's business as it works its way through the Chapter 11 process.
Collier Bankruptcy Manual (Matthew Bender) provides authoritative coverage of bankruptcy law in a time-saving compact guide. It is based on the most well-known and widely used bankruptcy treatise, Collier on Bankruptcy, and is organized by Bankruptcy Code sections for easy access. It provides up-to-date analysis on the Bankruptcy Code, Rules, case law, and related non-bankruptcy law.
