Donna Dishbak Wins Appeal

Donna Dishbak prevailed in an appeal brought by a Judgment Creditor who willfully violated the automatic stay.  Judge Kaufman awarded Simon Resnik Hayes $4,527.18 in attorney’s fees against a Judgment Creditor who violated the stay by instructing the Sheriff to continue to hold onto funds levied prepetition despite numerous requests by SRH to have those funds turned over to the Debtor.  The Judge Creditor appealed the order directly to the District Court, and the District Court affirmed Judge Kaufman’s order without oral argument.  Doc-19-Order-Affirming-Bankruptcy-Court's-Order-1
