The dismissal of a doctor's Chapter 11 petition has been vacated by a federal judge who held that a bankruptcy judge's "boilerplate warning" did not sufficently warn the doctor that failure to follow court directives could cause the case to be dismissed. The decision has "wide implications," calling into question the current framework for the administration of Chapter 11 cases, according to the doctor's attorney.
