Baker v. Simpson, 09-3848

In plaintiff's appeal from the denial of his motion to remand his legal malpractice action from a bankruptcy court to state court, the order is affirmed where claims of professional malpractice, based on services rendered pursuant to a Title 11 petition, "arise in" a bankruptcy case because they implicate the integrity of the bankruptcy process and are inseparable from that proceeding.
