Representative Work: Dismissal of Abusive Filings
We obtained three dismissals with prejudice of Chapter 13 cases on grounds of abuse of the bankruptcy laws after contested hearings. These cases involved repeat filers who had no intention of reorganizing. In one matter, the court barred the debtor from filing any type of bankruptcy for two years. This permitted the creditor (a county tax collector) to commence and continue with long-frustrated foreclosure proceedings.
