This is sometimes the case when actions are resolved through motions for default judgment. These hearings usually involve simple presentations of evidence after liability has already been established. However, they can cause a great deal of frustration, especially when judgment as to liability was entered through default, as they require creditor and attorney time, preparation, review, and attendance in court. Some courts also view these damages hearings as another "chance" for a previously disinterested defendant to appear and litigate the matter.Insights06 Sep 2018 00:00:00 -0800https://www.weltman.com/?t=40&an=80048&format=xml&p=7735Select Credit Unions May Still Be Able to Setoff a Member's Funds on Deposit Post-Dischargehttps://www.weltman.com/?t=40&an=79707&format=xml&p=7735A question I often encounter from credit unions concerning bankrupt members with delinquent accounts is whether they can setoff the debtor's funds on deposit to apply to unpaid loans.
