You can file a motion with the Bankrutpcy court asking that your official file time be changed, based on the information you provided.
You can also contest the auction sale, as if the auction started at 10:00 am, it is highly unlikely that ownership of your property was transferred before 10:11 am. This is because it takes time to run the auction, and then to sign the papers transferring the property. The time that matters per Bankruptcy law, is the time the property actually changed hands, not the time the auction began.
I think this is what you wanted to know. If not, please let me know.Thank you!
