Here’s more in the continuing "Year in Review" series. The inset photo is of the Senator Thad Cochran United States Bankruptcy Court in Aberdeen, Mississippi (pictures and story here), a 47,000 square foot complex that is home to the Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Mississippi, where Bankruptcy Judges Houston and Olack sit. Last year there were 6,101 total bankruptcy filings in the Northern District of Mississippi. By way of comparison, the Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Illinois–which could probably fit in the lobby of this mammoth structure–had the most filings at 59,093. Talk about influence!

The inset photo is of the US Courthouse for the Bankruptcy Court for the District of Arizona in Phoenix, where Judges James Marlar, George Nielsen, Redfield Baum, Sarah Sharer Curley, Charles Case II, Eileen Hollowell, and Randolph Haines preside.
