Case Law Index Agricultural Bankruptcy

January 1, 2002 – July 15, 2015

 

This index provides a comprehensive though not necessarily exhaustive compilation of reported and unreported federal and state court decisions involving agricultural bankruptcy that were decided between the dates listed above. The cases are listed in reverse chronological order.  The “Text” link goes to the freely available Google Scholar text of the opinion.  These listings are for educational purposes only, and are not a substitute for legal counsel.

Editor’s note: Bankruptcy case law revolves primarily around the Federal Bankruptcy Code, but the code allows states to either adopt federal bankruptcy exemptions or opt out of the code and create their own exemptions. This Bankruptcy Case Law Index was compiled with this difference in mind to provide users with quick and ready access to each state’s bankruptcy exemptions. Each state bankruptcy court decision is listed under the state’s name and not geographically according to circuit. District court opinions are similarly listed. Circuit courts of appeal decisions and the decisions of bankruptcy appellate panels are listed according to their respective circuits.
