Violation of Automatic Stay

Practice Area: Chapter 7 bankruptcy

Outcome: Judgment set aside, satisfactory settlement

Description: A young woman filed for protection under a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. A month before she was set to receive her discharge and fresh start, a creditor sought and obtained a judgment in a collection lawsuit against her, even though the lawsuit was covered by the bankruptcy. We demanded the creditor move to set aside the judgment and compensate our client for the violation of the bankruptcy's automatic stay.
