Professor Nancy Rapoport Quoted in Las Vegas Review-Journal

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

On Jan. 15, Professor Rapoport was quoted in the Las Vegas Review-Journal article "Caesars puts largest unit into bankruptcy; judge to issue modified stay."

The article reads, "UNLV Boyd School of Law professor Nancy Rapoport, who specializes in bankruptcy matters, said it was 'a little unusual' that the competing bankruptcy filings took place in different states. Caesars operates two casinos in Illinois, Harrah’s Metropolis and Harrah’s Joliet, which allowed the company to file its action in the state. 'The easiest thing is to dismiss the involuntary case,' Rapoport said. 'The unsecured creditors are just trying to take control and preserve their rights.'"

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