New York Law School Sports Law Symposium next Friday, Feb 22

Looking forward to being part of what should an excellent symposium next Friday at New York Law School -- great work by Brett Hirsch and David Soskin and many others in putting this together. 

I will be moderating the bankruptcy panel and will be sure to encourage discussion on the role of bankruptcy law in the sale of the Sacramento Kings.
