NO CLE - Hot Consumer Bankruptcy Topics

This year’s hot topics will include two cases currently pending before the U.S. Supreme Court: the Caulkett decision concerning lien-stripping on primary residences in chapter 7 cases, and the Harris case regarding distribution of funds held by a chapter 13 trustee upon conversion to chapter 7. The panel will discuss a new Ninth Circuit BAP decision, one of only two in the country, concerning the dischargeability of certain student debts to for-profit institutions, as well as an emerging trend of using the Eleventh Circuit Crawford decision and the FDCPA to challenge “stale” proofs of claim for student debt. The presentation will address lenders refusing to retake abandoned collateral, as well as conflicting results from disposable-income tests, and other issues that will be of interest to those representing parties in consumer cases.
