Municipal Risk: Detroit and Stockton Bankruptcy Roundtable

Date: February 24, 2015

Time: 5:00–8:00 p.m.

Location: Bloomberg L.P. Headquarters, 731 Lexington Avenue, 29th Floor (between 58th and 59th Streets), New York, NY 10022

The high-profile Detroit and Stockton cases, both resulting in confirmed plans of adjustment, have added more to Chapter 9 experience and law than any other recent municipal insolvencies since Jefferson County and Vallejo. Our experienced panelists will discuss the strategic choices made by these municipalities, and the resulting legal decisions, that may provide guidance for future Chapter 9 cases—and how the legacies of Detroit and Stockton could impact investors and other market players in municipal finance.
