The answer to what could convince a court to convert the Refco LLC Bankruptcy Case into Chapter 7 Bankruptcy could be located in Securities, Comedies, Contract, and Trusts Law. Thus, my argument before the Bankruptcy Court would be simple and straightforward. I would first argue that when I initially contracted with Refco to trade FOREX that a Trust was formed. The property in the Trust was never owned by Refco, but instead belonged to the Trust, which was holding it so that I could trade in the FOREX markets. In this argument I would cite supporting case law from various bankruptcy cases dealing with Commodities Brokers

This is one that has been debated upon for many years. At one time in the 1970’s the legal age to purchase alcohol was lowered to 18 in a few states, but was raised back to twenty-one for a rather disturbing reason. The number one reason that states raised the legal drinking age back to twenty one was because in 1984 federal law decrees that if a state picked anything less than twenty-one as its legal drinking age it would lose ten percent of its federal highway funds (Wilkinson, 2008). This is a manipulative way of getting the legal age changed without having to have a heated debate. Of course the states immediately changed the legal age back to twenty-one, had the age not been changed the state would have lost a considerable amount of highway funding.
