On Monday, February 10, 2014, the ABA House of Delegates adopted as ABA policy two resolutions sponsored by the Business Law Section.

The first, Resolution 102A, is designed to reduce uncertainty and to minimize expense, litigation, and wasted resources resulting from conflicts between asset forfeiture proceedings and bankruptcy proceedings involving the same parties or assets.

The second, Resolution 102B, resulted in the ABA adopting the “black letter” Model Principles of the “ABA Model Business and Supplier Policies on Labor Trafficking and Child Labor,” and urges businesses to adopt their own business and supplier policies on labor trafficking and child labor that are consistent with the Model Principles. The intention of Resolution 102B, developed by a broad-based Working Group of the Section and benefiting from extensive public input, is to assist businesses in guarding against labor trafficking and child labor and to assist in providing effective remediation when these forms of human trafficking occur.
