Lena M. James

The Court dismissed a pro se Chapter 11 Debtor's case where the Debtor filed the petition without counsel and failed to obtain counsel before the hearing on the Bankruptcy Administrator's Motion to Dismiss.

Dismissal, Published No

The Court overruled the Debtor's objection to claim. The Debtor executed a Confession of Judgment in favor of the Creditor, but the Confession of Judgment was not recorded pre-petition. While failure to record the Confession of Judgment rendered it unenforceable as a judgment under North Carolina law, the Creditor was still entitled to assert a general unsecured claim against the bankruptcy estate by filing a proof of claim to determine the Debtor's liability. The fact that the Confession of Judgment was not recorded does not affect the amount of the liability confessed therein.

Claims, Published No



The Court denied the Debtor's motion to impose automatic stay pursuant to Section 362(c)(4); there had not been a substantial change in the financial or personal affairs of the Debtor since the dismissal of the next most previous case, or any other reaon, to determine that the Chapter 13 case of the Debtor would be concluded with a confirmed plan that would be fully performed.

Automatic Stay, Published No
