On January 13, 2014, the Supreme Court heard oral argument in Law v. Siegel. The question presented is whether the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit erred in allowing a bankruptcy court to surcharge a debtor's constitutionally protected homestead property to cover the bankruptcy trustee's litigation expenses incurred as a result of the debtor's misconduct.

To discuss the case, we have Zvi Rosen, who is an adjunct professor at the New York Law School.
