Generally, a bankruptcy case concludes with a discharge order, which operates as an injunction against the commencement or continuation of an action by a creditor to recover on most prepetition debts under Section 524 of the Bankruptcy Code. On April 24, 2019, the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral argument in Taggart v. Lorenzen on whether a creditor’s good faith belief that a debtor’s discharge injunction does not apply to the creditor’s claim precludes a finding of civil contempt. In its briefing, the petitioner/debtor argued that a creditor who violated a discharge injunction was, per se, in contempt and liable for sanctions. The respondents/creditors argued that the court should consider whether an honest mistake had been made. The implications of this decision could have a far-reaching impact on how or whether creditors decide to pursue certain claims against debtors. In this article, special counsel James Bentley discusses the parties’ arguments and potential implications of the Supreme Court’s ruling.
