College of Law Professor Wins National Award
College of Law Professor Christopher W. Frost was awarded the 2014 Editors’ Prize by the American Bankruptcy Law Journal.
His article, entitled "Bankruptcy Voting, Bad Faith and Claim Designation," discusses the law surrounding creditor voting in Chapter 11 bankruptcy cases. It focuses particularly on the circumstances that lead judges to disqualify the votes of creditors based on creditor bad faith or other misuse of the voting power.
“It is an honor to receive this award from the National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges,” said Professor Frost. “Bankruptcy judges are true experts in the field and I am delighted that they found my contribution to be a useful one.”
The Editors' Prize is awarded annually by the National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges to an author who has demonstrated special excellence in an article published in the American Bankruptcy Law Journal in the preceding year. Professor Frost will receive the award at the National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges annual meeting in Chicago this October.
