Event Description

Steve Boyajian is among the panelists speaking during a Consumer Forum Session on "Violations of the Automatic Stay and the Discharge Injunction" as part of the 2019 Northeast Bankruptcy Conference & Northeast Consumer Forum in Newport, Rhode Island. Presented by the American Bankruptcy Institute, the session will cover current developments in the law in the First and Second Circuits for both violations of the automatic stay and discharge injunction. The panel will analyze the unique consequences debtors may face when filing for bankruptcy and what might or might not violate the automatic stay (e.g., revocation of a driver’s license after an uninsured motorist files), and how corporations are able to address stay violations. The panel will also discuss preparing both stay- and discharge-injunction-violation cases, including how to develop emotional-distress and punitive-damage claims, and possible additional claims to explore.

Additional details about the conference, including registration information, and the complete schedule can be accessed on the event web page.
