Professor Nancy Rapoport Interviewed by Las Vegas Review-Journal

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

On Jan. 28, the Las Vegas Review-Journal ran an article titled “Judge’s ruling on Chicago court seen as win for Caesars” discussing the Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing by Caesars Entertainment Corp. and the recent ruling allowing the company’s reorganization to take place in Chicago.

The ruling was a clear win for Caesars, said Professor Rapoport in the article. However, she also cautioned it was still early to tell how the case will proceed.

“A lot depends on what unrolls over the next few weeks,” she said. “This is a complicated, big bankruptcy with a lot of thorny issues.”

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