Over Bidders at Bankruptcy Auctions

Posted by:

 

The other day I was speaking with Riverside Chapter 7 Trustee Todd Frealy. He said that he has been involved in several auctions for chapter 7 trustees where there have been “over-bidders” on the property. This means that the property the trustee collects that is not-exempt is then sold to bidders at an auction at a price that is more than expected. The Trustee will usually make a deal with the debtor to have the debtor “buy back” ...

Last week at Riverside Chapter 7 Trustee Steve Speier’s meeting of creditors, there appeared a creditor for a case. The creditor had been to the hearing a few weeks before.

False Social Security Numbers and Bankruptcy

Recently I was in the meeting of creditors room on cases assigned to Riverside Chapter 7 Trustee Todd Frealy. The morning calendar started and several cases were heard with no problems. Then a series of spanish speaking debtors appeared and the hearings had to be done in Spanish. As you may know, an interpreter is provided to any debtor that requests one. This is done free of charge by the US government. Over 170 languages are available as the translators ...

Vacation and the Bankruptcy Attorney

Posted by:

 

It is the beginning of August and I am sitting in Riverside Trustee Arturo Cisneros’ 341(a) hearings. As usual the trustee is his efficient self and we have plenty of time between the hourly calendars. (This helps my clients as they have forgotten their Social Security proof and now have to scamper back home to get the proof.)

As I sit here waiting, I realize that my vacation is around the corner and ponder the three reasons a bankruptcy attorney and ...

In re Bellingham seminar: Part two

Posted by:

 

Previously on July 21, 2014, I posted on the July 19 seminar called In Re Bellingham: The Insiders view.  Here are the rest of my observations:

In order to practice for the argument, he went to various moot courts across the country in the space of a week. He practiced ...
