- The Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Florida (Judge Williamson) rendered an opinion interpreting the Supreme Court's ruling in Stern v. Marshall and stated that the Stern Court merely changed “one isolated respect” and made a very “narrow” ruling. In re Safety Harbor Resort & Spa, 2011 LEXIS 3238 (Bankr. M.D. Fla. Aug. 20, 2011). Therefore, the Bankruptcy Court reasoned in Safety Harbor that the “lock up” provisions proved to be integral to the confirmation of the plan and thus, as it was a core proceeding, fell within the Bankruptcy Court’s jurisdiction under 28 U.S.C. § 157(b)(2)(L). Moreover, the parties expressly and impliedly consented to the Bankruptcy Court’s jurisdiction through the actions in the case. , Business as Usual; Stern v. Marshall Did Not Change That Much, The Cramdown, Tampa Bay Bankruptcy Bar Association, 2011
