Consumer Bankruptcy Case Law Update: What’s Developing in Massachusetts

Make sure you’re up-to-date on the current state of the law!  Join the Bankruptcy Section on Monday, November 14th at 12:00 PM at the BBA to discuss recent decisions in Massachusetts and the First Circuit dealing with perennially thorny consumer bankruptcy issues—homestead exemptions, non-dischargeable debt, violations of the automatic stay and more!

There have been many important cases decided in our district this year—cases dealing with the limits of the Massachusetts homestead exemption, the meaning of “actual fraud” under 11 U.S.C. § 523(a)(2)(A), and the ability of a trustee to “clawback” college tuition payments, to name just a few.  Come learn more and discuss how to avoid new (and old) pitfalls!

 Kate Nicholson, Nicholson Herrick LLC, and Benjamin Higgins, Law Clerk, United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Massachusetts will be guest speakers.
