Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Bankruptcy attorney here to assist you.
The other members cannot sue Bruce because of the automatic stay that went into effect as soon as Bruce filed his Bankruptcy.
This is so, even if Bruce did not know the other members could sue him.
Interesting. So at no point in time, now or in the future, can any of the other members sue him. He is protected since he filed BK, even though it was not a 7? Thanks for you help assistance.
Yes - the automatic stay is equally applicable to each type of Bankruptcy. It does not matter which type was filed. However, if Bruce's Bankruptcy case is dismissed (for any reason), and is not discharged, then the members would be able to sue Bruce - as if he never filed a Bankruptcy.
You are great. THanks
