If a person is being sued for forging a quit claim deed can bankruptcy be used to stop the lawsuit and any settlements? And what would be the proper attorney to contact in this type of lawsuit? Also based on the evidence presented so far the Plantiff's attorney has a strong case against the Defendant with the help of numerous contradictions in the Defendant's deposition. The defendant has consulted a bankruptcy attorney who has assured them that everything will stop because the case will be tied up in bankruptcy court. IS THIS LEGALLY TRUE OR IS THE DEFENDANT HEADED DOWN A PIPE DREAM?
