Supreme Court Removes Cloud Over Bankruptcy Judges’ Powers, But Creditors Need To Remain Vigilant

On February 23, we reported on a case pending before the U.S. Supreme Court:  Wellness International Network, Limited v. Sharif.  On May 26, the Supreme Court in Wellness held that parties may waive their right to have certain claims decided by a court other than a Bankruptcy Court and that the waiver need not be express.  It can be implied as a result of a litigant’s conduct.  No. 13-935, 575 U.S. ___ (2015).
