Christopher Cahill will be the sole speaker at a Lorman Education CLE presentation on August 7, 2012 entitled, “Adding New Avoidance Defendants After the Expiration of the Limitations Period.” Mr. Cahill will discuss the proof required under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 15 — which governs the amendment and relation back of complaints to add new defendants — in light of clarifications made by the Supreme Court in Krupski v. Costa Crociere S.p.A., 130 S.Ct. 2485 (2010). While he will focus on adding defendants to adversary complaints in bankruptcy litigation, Mr. Cahill’s presentation will apply also to other federal civil litigation and to state litiigation under analogous rules.
