Burr Alert: Bullock v. BankChampaign: Defalcation under § 523(a)(4)

Articles / Publications

Whether because of the declining docket of the Court or the technical subject-matter involved, bankruptcy topics have come before the United States Supreme Court infrequently in recent years. This term, the Court heard a case out of the Eleventh Circuit, Bullock v. BankChampaign, to decide the following issues: (a) what degree of misconduct by a trustee constitutes "defalcation" under 11 U.S.C. §523(a)(4) of the Bankruptcy Code, and (b) whether that definition of defalcation includes actions that result in no loss of property.
