civil rights after bankruptcy

May 5th, 2009 by Questions

before my bankruptcy i had a great deal of personal property taken off of my property without my consent. the property was not to be taken , i found out later on, and also the city police said there should have been an inventory list of the property taken off, and there wasnt. can i still sue the person/persons involved in taking my property , which is now missing as it was to be put into storage…also they broke into my home and took a great deal of property including my work tools. thank you

, A licensed trustee said:

This is something you should have discussed with your trustee before you filed for bankruptcy. If you want to recover the times (or sue) now you’ll need to get your trustee to “sign-off” on the action. This is a bit technical, but your “right to sue” is an asset that you signed over to your trustee when you filed for bankruptcy. I suspect your trustee will sign it back over to you now, but you need to go and speak to them about this – if you don’t and the Court finds out about your bankruptcy they may just make you pay the other sides legal bill and throw the whole thing out of Court…
