In re Sekema

(Bankr. N.D. Ind. Jan. 7, 2015)

The bankruptcy court finds sanctions are appropriate and enters an order fining the creditors $1,000 for submitting proofs of claim in violation of Bankruptcy Rule 9011. The debts were clearly barred by Indiana’s six-year limitations period. The debtor objected to the proof of claim, the creditors did not respond, and the claims were denied. The court then issued show cause orders, to which the creditors also did not respond. The creditors had not conducted the reasonable investigation required by Rule 9011 before submitting the claims. Opinion below.
