Filing Too Many Bankruptcies Can Lead to No Protection

December 13th, 2017

The automatic stay is what keeps creditors from collecting from a person when they file for bankruptcy.  However, if the person files bankruptcy over and over, the court may rule that the automatic stay no longer exists, which would allow the person’s creditors to continue to collect from them.

Suing Bankruptcy Trustees

October 11th, 2017

Many people who have filed for bankruptcy and run into trouble often think of suing the bankruptcy trustee or bankruptcy receiver.  However, the Barton doctrine makes it very difficult to do so.  Under the Barton doctrine, in order to sue a bankruptcy trustee or bankruptcy receiver, the person who wants to sue must get permission from the bankruptcy court.  There are two general exceptions to this rule: (1) when the trustee or receiver commits a tort in the court of operating the debtor’s business, and (2) when the trustee or receiver mistakenly or wrongfully seizes property that is not property of the estate from a third party.
