Evidence Strikes Back

May 4, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Inland Empire Bankruptcy Forum

Evidence Strikes Back


  • Honorable Scott C. Clarkson – United States Bankruptcy Judge
  • Michael L. Simon – Smiley Wang-Ekvall, LLP
  • Tinho Mang – Marshack Hays LLP
  • Sonja M. Hourany – Quinn Company

It is a dark time for Debtor’s Counsel. Although COVID has been destroyed, Opposing Counsel has driven Debtors from their base and pursued them across the Central District. Evading the dreaded evidentiary hearing, the League of IOF (“Improper Objection Fighters”) led by the Hon. Scott C. Clarkson have established a new secret base at the Marriott Hotel in Riverside. An evil lord, obsessed with disrupting the Force of young debtor attorneys throughout the District, has dispatched thousands of evidentiary objections into the far reaches of the Court record. What happens next? Sign up for the IEBF’s “Evidence Strikes Back” to see how it ends!

There will be a focus on the continuing problems in Bankruptcy Court of Hearsay, Best Evidence Rule, Authentication of Documents, How to admit Social Media Evidence (Facebook, Instagram, TikTok postings, etc.) and Admissibility of Kelly Blue Book and California Association of Realtors Median County Home Values (respecting homestead amount calculations.)
