An article in the March 19, 2006 Atlanta Journal, entitled Bankruptcy Tide Rolls On (one time registration may be required), discusses the steady rise in consumer filings since the effective date of the BAPCPA.  Several local consumer bankruptcy attorneys are qouted.  It remains to be seen if this purported trend has taken off in the Northern District, but filings are increasing in 2006.  According to Clerk statistics,  filings in the Northern District in February 2006 are still less than half of filings in February ’05.  January ’06 filings were down over 67% from January ’05.
