Der Insolvenzplan

Von seiner dogmatischen Deutung als Vertrag und seiner Fortentwicklung in eine Bestätigungsinsolvenz

English summary: It is in times of crisis that many people avail themselves of insolvency law; nevertheless these people eschew a company's reorganization based on an insolvency plan. Stephan Madaus develops a new type of planning procedure which as a pre-voted insolvency would make it possible to reorganize a company in a short and predictable insolvency procedure. German description: Krisenzeiten sind Blutezeiten des Insolvenzrechts. Fur die Insolvenzordnung des Jahres 1999 ist die gegenwartige Finanz- und Wirtschaftskrise die erste echte Feuertaufe und die angestossenen Reformen belegen, dass sich gerade ihr Planverfahren noch nicht bewahrt hat. Da die Fortentwicklung jedes Rechtsinstituts zwingend das Verstandnis seiner Dogmatik voraussetzt, untersucht Stephan Madaus zunachst ausfuhrlich die Rechtsnatur des Insolvenzplans, den er als (in der Entstehung von einem Kontrahierungszwang begleiteten) Vertrag zwischen allen Beteiligten erkennt. Hierauf aufbauend entwickelt er in Anlehnung an das U.S.-amerikanische Insolvenzrecht eine neue Variante des Planverfahrens, die es de lege ferenda als reine Bestatigungsinsolvenz ermoglichen wurde, vorinsolvenzliche Abstimmungen uber einen Insolvenzplan im anschliessenden Insolvenzverfahren unter Eigenverwaltung nur noch bestatigen zu lassen.

The Ethics of Bankruptcy

The fundamental ethical problem in bankruptcy is that insolvents have promised to pay their debts but can not keep their promise. The Ethics of Bankruptcy examines the morality of bankruptcy. The author compares and contrasts the Humean doctrine of promises as useful conventions with the Kantian view of autonomous agency constituting promissory obligations; he explores ethical concerns raised by forgiveness, utilitarianism and distributive justice and the moral aspects of insolvents' contractual, fiduciary, tortious and criminal liability. Finally, the author assesses recent bankruptcy law reforms. Bankruptcies severly hurt creditors and society. For the insolvents and their families the experience is painful and stigmatising, yet philosophers have paid little attention to the moral aspects of this violent social phenomenon. The Ethics of Bankruptcy is the first comprehensive study that employs the tools of ethics to examine the controversies surrounding insolvency, which makes valuable and sometimes controversial reading in a decade recovering from the Recession.

Die Inhaber von Kreditsicherheiten sind als absonderungsberechtigte Glaubiger an dem uber das Vermogen des Sicherungsgebers eroffneten Insolvenzverfahren beteiligt. In einer Reihe von Fallen sind nicht sie, sondern der Insolvenzverwalter zur Verwertung des Sicherungsgutes und zur Einziehung zur Sicherung abgetretener Forderungen berechtigt. Gegenuber Grundpfandglaubigern raumt das Gesetz dem Insolvenzverwalter eigene Befugnisse ein. Dennoch uben die zur abgesonderten Befriedigung berechtigten gesicherten Glaubiger erheblichen Einfluss auf die Abwicklung von Insolvenzverfahren aus. Fur das Insolvenzverfahren sind weiter personliche Sicherheiten von erheblicher Bedeutung. Die Neuauflage erweitert und vertieft diese Fragestellungen und behandelt insbesondere die umfangreiche Judikatur des BGH. Die Themenschwerpunkte: Vorrechtsstellung der Mobiliarpfandglaubiger; Sicherungszession im Eroffnungsverfahren und im eroffneten Verfahren; Fehlerquellen; Prozessuale Durchsetzung der Absonderungsrechte; Eingriffe in Absonderungsrechte im Insolvenzplan; Kreditsicherheiten im Verbraucherinsolvenzverfahren; Dingliche Rechte in grenzuberschreitenden Insolvenzverfahren; Einfluss auf die Vergutung des Insolvenzverwalters.

Reprint of the third edition. More convenient than the extensive contemporary works of Collier or Remington, Black's handy treatise, which uses the format of a West Hornbook, offers a summary of the law as it stood in the early 1920s. Though its size led some to suspect it was superficial, it was generally well-received and did much to popularize the field. As one reviewer wrote, "[i]t is to be hoped [this book] marks the beginning of a new period in bankruptcy law that will witness its welcoming into the repertoire of the lawyer as one of the regular devices for regulating business relations.": Nathan Isaacs, University of Pennsylvania Law Review 73 (1924-1925) 120.
