Fire Eagle L.L.C. appeals the district court's decision affirming a bankruptcy court's grants of summary judgment in two consolidated matters. The ability of a bankruptcy court to resolve certain statutorily core proceedings implicates a strong public-policy interest. The bankruptcy court may decline to enforce a forum-selection clause. The district court's judgment is affirmed. 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, No. 11-51057, 02-28-2013.
