Bob Eisenbach at the Business Bankruptcy Blog summarizes the 9th Circuit case of Sigma Micro Corp. v.,  No. 04-17565 (9th Cir. Sep. 21, 2007), which involves the right to a jury trial in a preference action. Although the issue at hand involves the interpretation of a local rule in California, Bob provides a good general summary of the right to jury trial in preference actions, and the opinion may be relevant in other districts.
