December’s topic was Bankruptcy and Environmental Law: Overview and Latest Trends. Bracewell Partners, Mark Dendinger (Bankruptcy) and Jason Hutt (Environment, Lands and Resources) addressed the intersection of bankruptcy and environmental law – two legal regimes that take very different approaches to liabilities.  Mark and Jason then addressed key environmental issues in bankruptcy, including contamination, decommissioning and emission trading liabilities, and the variables that determine whether these obligations can be discharged.  Their discussion included highlights from recent decisions in the Delaware and Texas bankruptcy courts.
