Venue Choice: Where the Action Is
WILLIAM C. WHITFORDt
This symposium presents papers first delivered at a
conference held at Wisconsin Law School on September 9,
2005. The conference was generously supported by the
George H. Young Chair, held by Dean Kenneth B. Davis,
Jr., and the Institute for Legal Studies at Wisconsin Law
School. The biggest contributions were the time and exper-
tise of the participants, whose revised contributions to the
conference follow.
The conference was organized at my initiative. Lynn
LoPucki's work on the large case Chapter 11 reorganiza-
tions began during his time here at Wisconsin. We were col-
laborators in the initial work. When my work took me to
other issues, LoPucki continued and expanded the work ex-
tensively, as is well known by anybody who works in the
field. Courting Failure' collects together much of this work
and deals with very important issues. It seemed appropri-
ate that at this time Wisconsin stimulated the assessment
of LoPucki's overall contributions in this part of his work.
I was also motivated to convene the conference for an-
other reason. Much of the controversy that ensued immedi-
ately upon publication of Courting Failure concerned
LoPucki's choice of the word corruption to describe the ju-
i Professor Emeritus, University of Wisconsin Law School.
