On October 25th, approximately 30 lawyers from around the country met at the National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges in San Diego, CA.  Peter, who testified before Congress in September 2011 in support of HR 2533, co-chaired the first organizational meeting of a growing group of law firms and lawyers who support bankruptcy venue reform that would require debtors to file a bankruptcy petition in the district where their main operations are located.  The group is currently collecting data on cases and the economic information on the impact of “lost” filings and is developing strategies for moving the issue forward toward the eventual passage of legislation that would amend the Bankruptcy Code.
