Editor's Note :

In previous years, the Court released orders the morning after the Court’s “Long Conference.” It has not done so this year. Beginning last Term, the Court consistently considered petitions at least two times before granting certiorari. To the extent that practice continues -- and there is no affirmative evidence the Court intends to drop it -- we would not expect orders granting certiorari today.

Countrywide Home Mortgages v. Rodriguez

Petition for certiorari denied on November 14, 2011
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
10-1285 3d Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2011

Issue: Does the Bankruptcy Code's automatic stay, 11 U.S.C. §362, take precedence over a mortgage lender's right under the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act, 12 U.S.C. §2609(a)(2), to require a borrower to deposit additional funds into his escrow account after filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy protection when those funds are needed to cover the borrower's anticipated post-petition taxes, insurance, and other escrow obligations?
