Govt. Claims/Sovereign Immunity
The government doesn’t violate the automatic stay by refusing to reinstate a driver’s license suspended for failure to pay traffic fines, Judge Surratt-States says.
Courts are divided when an exemption claim collides with the government’s right of setoff.
Ninth Circuit splits with the First on the interpretation of Section 106(a).
The Third and Seventh Circuits agree on a concept that limits a debtor’s ability to recover accrued Social Security benefits that are set off before bankruptcy.
A bankruptcy court’s in rem jurisdiction overrides a claim of sovereign immunity.
