Creditor inaction may constitute violation of automatic stay

When a person files a petition for bankruptcy in Ohio, all creditor collection actions must cease. This is because filing for bankruptcy triggers an automatic stay, and creditors who violate it are subject to punishment under the law. Courts are divided on whether or not creditors must unwind ongoing collections cases when the debtor files for bankruptcy. Some say inaction on the part of the creditor, leaving the pending case wherever it happens to be, is fine. Others, including a recent bankruptcy court decision, have said the creditor must make affirmative efforts to prevent ongoing collections.
