In Re DBSI, Inc., 16-35597

Affirming decisions by the bankruptcy court and district court that the Congress had unambiguously abrogated sovereign immunity as it relates to actions associated with bankruptcy, an abrogation that extends to derivative 'applicable laws' such as Idaho's Uniform Fraudulent Transfer Act and the government could not rely on sovereign immunity to prevent the avoidance of the tax payments at issue.
