Bankruptcy – Discharge injunction – Foreclosure

Where a U.S. Bankruptcy Court judge found that the defendants did not violate the discharge injunction by refusing to foreclose or release its mortgage lien on the plaintiff debtors’ residence, the judge’s ruling was not inconsistent with Pratt v. General Motors Acceptance Corp. (In re Pratt), 462 F.3d 14 (1st Cir. 2006), and accordingly should be affirmed.
