The Minority Opinion in Hall Was Correct 05/17/2012 @ 9:37am I file more Chapter 12's than any other Illinois lawyer and am a long-time Fellow of the American College of Bankruptcy. The problem with Hall's majority opinion is that most farm-asset sales occur post-petition and few occur in the year preceding bankruptcy. While the text of Section 1222 of the Bankruptcy Code could have been clearer, the majority's opinion emasculates Section 1222's intent and doesn't take into account the reality of what occurs in Chapter 12 practice. Congress can correct a bad Supreme Court decision and should do so here. Barry M. Barash, Galesburg, IL
