  5. In Re Drexel Burnham Lambert Group, Inc. (1992)

    Resolution of the competing motions for summary judgment before us in this adversary proceeding[1] requires us to venture into the thicket that is "executory contracts," where, says one commentator, "lurks a hopelessly convoluted and contradictory jurisprudence." Andrew, Executory Contracts Revisited: A Reply to Professor Westbrook, 62 U.Colo.L.Rev. 1, 1 (1991). Our expedition through the present, bramble-filled thicket persuades us that, in the words of another commentator, in no area of [...]
