In re Ralph William Crosby, E.D.B.C. 15-23674

Nicholas Lazzarini obtains "In Rem" relief from stay for creditor George Boeger, allowing Mr. Boeger to proceed with a sale of real property. Debtor Ralph Crosby and his son had filed 6 previous bankruptcy petitions to delay creditors from taking action against the property. The "In Rem" relief will prevent any automatic stay by any bankruptcy filer from attaching to the property for a period of 2 years, allowing the creditor to force a sale of the property.
