During the current survey, June 1, 1990 through May 31, 1991, the Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit decided several cases affecting the area of federal bankruptcy law. The current survey article will examine three Fifth Circuit cases decided in the current period. The first of these decisions is a highly significant to the practice of bankruptcy law and addresses the effect of pre-bankruptcy planning on the debtor's ability to obtain a discharge in bankruptcy. Other Fifth Circuit cases make less significant contributions. The second case discusses the standing of a third party creditor to recover expenses from a secured creditor's collateral. The third of these cases addresses disqualification of an attorney who represents both a debtor limited partner and a debtor general partner in bankruptcy proceedings.
