In re Travers

(Bankr. E.D. Ky. Nov. 18, 2015)

The bankruptcy court rejects the creditor’s argument that its wholly underwater lien on the Chapter 13 debtors’ residence cannot be avoided based on § 1322(b)(2). The creditor argued that the Supreme Court’s recent decision in Bank of America, N.A. v. Caulkett mandates that result, despite the fact that prior Sixth Circuit precedent makes clear that a Chapter 13 debtor may strip off such a lien. The court holds that Caulkett does not apply and it is required to comply with the prior Sixth Circuit precedent because it has not been overruled. Opinion below.
