    Learn from those involved in the recent 7th Circuit Court of Appeals case, US v Apex Oil Co, which held that an EPA cleanup order under RCRA does not constitute a "claim" that was dischargeable in bankruptcy. This program will examine the evolving case law at the intersection of bankruptcy and environmental policy -- defining when and under what conditions environmental obligations are dischargeable in bankruptcy. Issues to be analyzed from the both the environmental and bankruptcy standpoints include:
    • Lessons learned for those representing potentially responsible parties that are bankruptcy debtors or nondebtors.
    • How the case is likely to impact governmental strategies for compelling cleanup of contaminated sites.
    • What questions remain unanswered following Apex?
