Following this introduction, Part II evaluates the effectiveness of the BAPCPA by measuring bankruptcy filing rates pre- and post-enactment and examines the losses disclosed by some of the largest credit lenders who lobbied for the bill. Part III discusses the legal challenges to BAPCPA that have already appeared in federal court. Part IV explains some of the more heavily-criticized shortcomings of the BAPCPA. This comment concludes with a brief discussion of the root causes of bankruptcy that remain unaffected by the passage of the BAPCPA.
