Bankruptcy Judge Wes Steen has retired from the bench, after 17
years of distinguished service in both the Southern District of
Texas and the Middle District of Louisiana. A past President of the
ABI (the only judge to serve as President), he was also a member of
the American Bankruptcy Institute Law Review advisory board.
To honor Judge Steen, ABI has established an annual ABI Law Review
prize in his name, for the best article published in the ABI Law
Review in a particular year as selected by the advisory board. Upon
publishing with the ABI Law Review, each author is automatically
eligible for the prize.
The first award of $5,000 will be funded in 2011 by a donation from
the Houston Bar Association Bankruptcy Section, the Moeller Foltz
Inn of Court and the Houston Association of Consumer Bankruptcy
