Court observed that creditor who repossesses car prior to bankruptcy filing cannot condition the turnover of the vehicle on the provision of adequate protection, such as proof of insurance, unless the creditor moves promptly for relief in the bankruptcy court. http://www.ganb.uscourts.gov/judges/opn/opn_view.php?Id=1900
