Wilmington associate Patrick Jackson was quoted in a Bloomberg Law article, “Delaware’s Most Welcoming Bankruptcy Judge to Bid Farewell,” covering the retirement of Delaware Bankruptcy Judge Kevin Gross. According to the article, Judge Gross’s retirement, expected in early 2020, was announced by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware on April 8.
Judge Gross has overseen some of the nation’s most notable bankruptcy cases, including those involving the Los Angeles Dodgers and Nortel Networks. While known for his friendly courtroom manner, those who have worked with him agree that Judge Gross can quickly change gears. According to Patrick, who was involved in a multi-party mediation process facilitated by Gross, “He can turn on a dime.”
The reporter reached out to Patrick because in 2017 he co-authored an in-depth bio piece on the Judge for The Federal Lawyer (the flagship publication of the Federal Bar Association).
