Nancy Rapoport Quoted in Reuters

Nancy B. Rapoport is the Gordon Silver Professor of Law at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

On Aug. 1, she was quoted in the Reuters article Lawyers in Detroit bankruptcy may face scrutiny on fees.

"Do you really want to poke momma bear? Is that something you want to argue with Rhodes about?" she said of Judge Steven Rhodes in the article.

Judge Rhodes is proposing the appointment of a fee examiner to monitor the fees charged to the city of Detroit by bankruptcy lawyers. "Legal experts doubt anyone will challenge his authority to make the appointment," the article reads.

Professor Rapoport's specialties are bankruptcy ethics, ethics in governance, and the depiction of lawyers in popular culture.
