I recently obtained sanctions against a serial filing bankrutpcy debtor and his attorney. The debtor filed chapter 13 bankruptcy three times to avoid foreclosure. The Bankrutpcy Court awarded monetary sanctions in the amount of $1,760.66 against the Debtor and his Attorney! The Court also dismissed the third bankruptcy with an order barring any more filings by this debtor for at least six months. Creditors have learned that bankruptcy courts strongly favor the debtor and vigilantly protect the debtor's "fresh start", but eventually, a debtor abuses the process a step too far.
