New Opinion on Lam Motions in Chapter 20

In re Frazier, 2012 Westlaw 812387 (E.D. Cal. March 2012), the District Court has affirmed the bankruptcy court’s ruling allowing a residential lien strip notwithstanding no discharge in the chapter 13.  The court says, “Instead of discharge, the Court agrees with the underlying Bankruptcy Court and finds plan completion is the appropriate end to Appellees’ Chapter 20 case.  The lien strip will become permanent not upon a discharge, as would happen in a typical Chapter 13 case, but upon completion of all payments as required by the plan. See In re Blenheim, 2011 WL 6779709 (Bankr.W.D.Wash. Dec.27, 2011).”
