Abstract

This amicus brief argues that, when the only objection to a proof of claim in an individual debtor's bankruptcy case is that some paperwork is missing, but not that the amount is incorrect, filing an objection that moves to strike the entire claim is a violation of Bankruptcy Rule 9011 and sanctions should be upheld.

Keywords: Bankruptcy Code, Rule 9011, attorneys, professional responsibility, ethics, debtors, individual debtors
