Christakis v. Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union

Defendants were creditors of Plaintiff who obtained final judgments against Plaintiff. A levy of execution was made on Plaintiff’s real property. Plaintiff subsequently received a discharge under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code. Plaintiff did not seek or obtain a ruling from the Bankruptcy Court avoiding any of Defendants’ liens. Thereafter, Plaintiff filed a complaint to remove the judicial liens. The judge entered judgment in favor of all three defendants, including two defaulting defendants, ruling that Defendants’ liens remained. The Supreme Judicial Court affirmed, holding that Defendants’ liens survived the bankruptcy discharge as a matter of federal and state law. View "Christakis v. Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union" on Justia Law
