Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In In Re: Kirkland, No. 09-1379, the court addressed the issue of whether a bankruptcy court had jurisdiction to determine post-petition interest and collection costs to which the creditor was entitled as the result of a default on a student loan that occurred after Chapter 13 estate was closed and the debtor discharged.
As stated in the decision: "ECMC's claim to post-petition interest and collection costs is not a matter "under Title 11" nor is it a civil proceeding "arising in" or "related to" Kirkland's bankruptcy petition." Also stated in the decision: "A claim to post-petition interest and collection costs is also not a matter "arising in" or "related to" a bankruptcy proceeding."
Thus, in reversing the district court's decision, the court held that the bankruptcy court lacked subject matter jurisdiction in the matter.
