F&B Enterprises Trustee Seeks a Declaratory Judgment Avoiding Lien Under Massachusetts Law
February 7, 2021, Southern District of Massachusetts – Debora A. Casey, the Chapter 7 Trustee of the bankruptcy estate of F&B Enterprises, Inc. ( the “Debtor”) brings an action to avoid a lien asserted by Travelers Indemnity Company (the “Defendant” or “Travelers”) and preserve such lien for the estate. The real property involved is for about $113,069.
Previously, Defendant had obtained a writ of attachment on one of the Debtor’s property. Subsequently, Defendant also attained an execution and levied and suspended on the execution.
Now, the Trustee seeks a declaratory judgment that Defendant’s levy is void and its lien is invalid since Defendant did not bring the levy forward, within 6 years period in the registry, in a manner required for bringing forward attachment of real estate.
The case is In re F&B Enterprises, Inc. in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Massachusetts under Case No. – 00-17917-FJB. Honorable Judge Frank J. Bailey is pressing over the case.
