The bankruptcy court awards the debtor $2,369 in attorney fees and punitive damages to be paid by the secured creditor, who failed to appear at the stay violation hearing. Despite the debtor’s attorney telling the creditor to cease communications following the filing of the petition, the creditor continued to contact the debtor by telephone and through written communications.
