Bankruptcy Court Trial Practice Symposium


ABI Northeast Bankruptcy Conference

Hyatt Regency Newport, Newport, RI
(July 21-24, 2011)

Patrick P. Dinardo was a presenter at the American Bankruptcy Institute's 18th Annual Northeast Bankruptcy Conference. Mr. Dinardo participated in the trial practice symposium, a mandatory program for all practitioners who litigate in the bankruptcy courts. In the context of a mock trial in a trustee’s action for breach of fiduciary duty against directors and officers of the debtor who conducted a Ponzi scheme, top trial lawyers will present evidence, assert objections and advance arguments, and judges will rule on objections to testimony and documentary evidence. Attendees were given the opportunity to discuss the issues in roundtable groups led by bankruptcy judges.
