This commentary examines the implications for consumer debtors filing for bankruptcy relief under chapter 11. This option was made available to all consumer debtors in the Supreme Court decision of Toibb v. Radloff. The author contends that the consumer debtor will only obtain a false start, instead of a fresh start, by turning to chapter 11 for the sought-after relief.
