The American College of Bankruptcy has bestowed a great honor upon the Chief U.S. Bankruptcy Judge for the Northern District of Alabama, Thomas B. Bennett. The College will induct Judge Bennett into its ranks on March 15, 2013, during a ceremony held in Washington D.C. The American College of Bankruptcy is an honorary association of bankruptcy and insolvency professionals. Its website states nominees are chosen based upon a proven record of the highest standards of professionalism and service to the profession. In his 18 years on the bench, Judge Bennett has established himself as a preeminent jurist and currently presides over the Jefferson County Chapter 9 bankruptcy case, the largest municipal bankruptcy filing in U.S. history. Throughout his career, Judge Bennett has spent copious amounts of his personal time assisting other lawyers and judges in sharpening their knowledge and skills as bankruptcy professionals through his contributions to continuing legal education. I would like to personally thank Judge Bennett for his generous support over the years to the Alabama State Bar Bankruptcy and Commercial Law Section as a speaker and advisor for its annual bankruptcy seminar. This is a proud day for all bankruptcy professionals in Alabama.
