Eight years ago, in Plan Proponent’s inaugural year, I did my first and, until today, only pure Thanksgiving post (including now 13 year old Kate B’s above turkey art). For 2021 Thanksgiving, I posted Part 3 of the Judge Drake Tribute Series, but that doesn’t count.

A pure post is difficult. While “Thanksgiving” is often referenced in bankruptcy opinions, I had to dig deep in 2015 for something relevant and interesting. That post included filing statistics from 2005 to 2015; cases addressing cutting edge issues about whether “Black Friday” is a holiday for Rule 9006 purposes; and a reference to a 2015 Thanksgiving Day newspaper article about a Florida bankruptcy lawyer who has, since 2011, performed as “Chuckles the Clown” in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Unfortunately, the well has run dry since 2015 on interesting Thanksgiving-related bankruptcy stuff. Thus, click here for the original post (it’ still pretty good) and enjoy these updated, live filing stats since 2015.

Happy Thanksgiving!
