A person, CH, is in Chp. 13,, bankruptcy. CH has a judgement against her in a county civil court from a bank. That first started in 2010. Case was reopened in 2015, and judgement was for the plaintiff for $49,000 in June 2016.In April 2016, CH filed a new amended Chp. 13 plan which was confirmed May 2016. The Bank was a creditor and still gets certificates of notice. However the bank is not listed in CH amended plan as either a secured or unsecured claim. Is this allowed?? Does CH have to inform trustee of this new judgement of June 2016 for $49,000.

This is an ethics question in a bankruptcy context I red a

This is an ethics question in a bankruptcy contextI hired a law firm to handle my Chapter 11 bankruptcy after Partner A and I had discussed the case over the phone in sufficient detail to relay my seriousness, my income, and the size of my debt to my sole impaired creditor. After I had signed the retainer and wired the money, I went in and met with Partner A. We went over my assets and income again and he told me how he thought the BK should be structured.I was assigned Partner B as my attorney. The day to day work has been done by a capable and experienced junior attorney. We have obtained a handshake deal for the vote I need in order to have a confirmable plan. We expect that vote next week, and a confirmation at the confirmation hearing in 6 weeks.Yesterday, the junior attorney told me that until recently, partners A and B didn't think my bankruptcy plan would be confirmed.Should one of them have told me that soon after they came to believe it?

Im a law clerk at a government agency looking into bankruptcy issues. Years ago we filed a Proof of Claim on a company that had filed ch 11. The BK has since been terminated (in 2015), not sure what that means since the case was terminated rather than discharged. Do we have a claim here? How would we collect? Or what happened to the debt owed to our office?

Here is the timeline of events:1) April 15, 2016 - Filed Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in the District of Alaska2) May 30, 2016 (with 60 days of filing) I filed Official Form 427 expressing that my residential lease would not be assumed (we decided to reject the lease and seek more affordable housing).June 11, 2016 - Notified Landlord that we have completely moved out (Please note that rent was paid in full up to July 1, 2016) so we thought we were doing the right thing by leaving early once we knew we would no longer be able to afford the apartment.We are 100% sure that the landlord received our notification.The landlord just sent me a collection notice and notice of a pending late fee if I do not pay July-September rent. He also included the following statement "Bankruptcy will not protect you from your early termination of our Rental Agreement nor for any damages to the property (there were none). Once damages have been assessed, they will be forwarded to you for immediate payment. Until then, rent is due per our agreement and both rent and late fees will keep accruing through the end of September when your lease ends. If you decide not to pay and not to abide by or agreement, you will also be responsible for any attorney and collection fees. Choose wisely."

I now have a client of a closed company threatening me. The owner of the company closed this company, and the owner declared bankruptcy. The trustee of the bankrupt disclaimed rights over the closed company. The client said the owner of the closed company assigned its rights to the client's remaining inventory I hold. The client is threatening me regarding the status of other inventory I hold, wanting a full status report on all inventory. My question is; does this client have rights over their own inventory only or can the owner of the closed company assign all the rights to remaining inventory, even those the client does not own the inventory, but other people who paid for this inventory are the owners.
