ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the bankruptcy act which states that in the absence of special circumstances, a bankruptcy court is not required to prevent an arbitrator from determining whether a debt has been discharged in bankruptcy, with reference to the court case, Fallick versus Kehr. While the Bankruptcy Act does express a strong legislative policy that deserving debtors be allowed to get a fresh start, there is no reason to believe that an arbitrator would ignore the Act or thwart this purpose of discharging debtors.
