I love it when the Ninth Circuit invites amicus briefs. It's awesome.
I'm not going to write one in this case. As I know little -- wait, make that nothing -- about the relevant issue.
But if you have an opinion, by all means, share it with 'em. The question is: "Does Stern v. Marshall, 131 S. Ct. 2594 (2011), prohibit bankruptcy courts from entering a final, binding judgment on an action to avoid a fraudulent conveyance? If so, may the bankruptcy court hear the proceeding and submit a report and recommendation to a federal district court in lieu of entering a final judgment?"
No idea. But we'd love to find out.
You've got thirty days to submit the brief.
POSTSCRIPT - The day after Thanksgiving, the Ninth Circuit gives everyone another 45 days. Yay! So now you've got until January 19, 2012. So put that on your holiday to-do list.
