11 U.S. Code § 1107. Rights, powers, and duties of debtor in possession
The House amendment adopts section 1107(b) of the Senate amendment which clarifies a point not covered by the House bill.
This section places a debtor in possession in the shoes of a trustee in every way. The debtor is given the rights and powers of a chapter 11 trustee. He is required to perform the functions and duties of a chapter 11 trustee (except the investigative duties). He is also subject to any limitations on a chapter 11 trustee, and to such other limitations and conditions as the court prescribes cf. Wolf v. Weinstein, 372 U.S. 633, 649–650 (1963).
