1. The court clearly opted in favor of a bright line rule. How was this policy articulated by the court?
2. Does this decision seem fair? Ethical? What burden does this place on the creditor that was not there before? What about those whose ethics are not what they should be? Would the lower court’s decision give them a way to avoid being found by allowing any name they wished to provide?
3. The federal law has requirements similar to the old Article 9 requirements. Would it be better if states were to unify their filing requirements to meet the federal standard? Does it create less certainty to have different filing rules for each location?
