Thank you

yes, there is recent law that states that it does.

In re RW Meridian LLC, 564 B.R. 21 (9th Cir. BAP 2017). The Ninth Circuit Bankruptcy Appellate Panel considered whether the pre-petition expiration of the Debtor’s right of redemption for unpaid taxes permitted the tax authority to complete a tax sale post-petition without obtaining relief from the stay. The BAP held that the automatic stay applied, voiding the sale. The BAP noted that on the petition date, Debtor held “equitable and legal interests in the property” and that those interests, “including legal title and possession”.

Equity One, Inc. v. Shivers, 150 Conn. App. 745, 753-56 (2014), wherein Connecticut’s Appellate Court held that the Automatic Stay precludes the Superior Court from acting upon a Committee for Sale’s request.

Hope that helps.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
