Another Awesome Session at NACBA25!

This panel consisting of Sarah Bolling Mancini, Michelle Kainen with moderator Greta LaMountain Biagi will delve into the most recent case law enforcing and interpreting Rule 3002.1 to deal with mortgage cure issues, including the PHH Mortgage decision (litigated by panelist Michelle Kainen) in which the Bankruptcy Court of Vermont imposed a $375,000 sanction for the creditor’s repeated failure to comply with Rule 3002.1 in three chapter 13 cases. We will also discuss recent cases in which chapter 13 trustees have sought denial of the discharge based on post-petition mortgage payment defaults identified through Rule 3002.1 notices. The panel will also highlight recent (and proposed) changes to the rule.
