A Crestview Personal Bankruptcy Attorney is Highlighting A Recent Ruling on Student Loan Debt

February 14, 2020 - /PressAdvantage/ - Crestview, Fla. - A recent court case has made an unprecedented decision to discharge student loan debt. The ruling was made in New York in which the judge found the debtor satisfied “undue hardship”, a standard in the Bankruptcy Code. Lewis and Jurnovoy, a Crestview personal bankruptcy attorney, is highlighting this recent ruling.

Typically, student loans are not dischargeable when filing for bankruptcy. In the recent case, the debtor Kevin Jared Rosenberg had over $220,000.00 in student debt at the time the case was filed. Rosenberg filed a case where he declared his student loan debt dischargeable under section 523(a)(8) of the Bankruptcy Code.

This section of the code exempts student loan debt unless there is an “undue hardship”. Mr. Rosenberg made his case and a decision was made on January 27, 2020, granting the student loan debt dischargeable. During this case, the ‘Brunner’ standard was used to test the debt along with other previous student loan cases.

The recent ruling sets a new precedent in the field of bankruptcy. Following the path of the Rosenberg case could have the potential to hugely change the way student loan debt is treated in bankruptcy.

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

Sep 19, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns.

Muslim hajj pilgrims ascend Mount Arafat for day of worship

Sep 19, 2020

MOUNT ARAFAT, Saudi Arabia — More than 2 million Muslims are gathered at the sacred hill of Mount Arafat in Saudi Arabia for an intense day of worship and reflection on what's considered the climax of the Islamic hajj pilgrimage. Some had tears streaming down their faces as the men, wearing simple white garments, and women raised their hands in worship on the slopes of the rocky hill. Many walked through the pre-dawn darkness early Saturday to the hill where the Prophet Muhammad delivered his final sermon some 1,400 years ago, calling for equality and unity among Muslims. One of...

Saudi changes allow women to travel without male consent

Sep 19, 2020

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Saudi Arabia published new laws early Friday that loosen restrictions on women by allowing any citizen to apply for a passport and travel freely, ending a long-standing guardianship policy that gave men control over women. The changes are a potential game-changer for Saudi women's rights in the kingdom. The legal system has long been criticized because it treated women as minors throughout their adult lives, requiring they have a man's consent to obtain a passport or travel abroad. Often a woman's male guardian is her father or husband, and in some cases a woman's own...

Egypt demands Christie's halt auction of King Tut statue

Sep 19, 2020

CAIRO — Egypt has tried to halt the auction of a 3,000-year-old stone sculpture of the famed boy pharaoh Tutankhamun at Christie's in London, while the auction house said its sale was legal. The statue — a brown quartzite head depicting King Tut — is scheduled to be auctioned off in July, and could generate more than $5 million, according to Christie's. The artifact features King Tut's full mouth with slightly drooping lower lips and almond-shaped eyes. For many, King Tut is the ultimate symbol of ancient Egypt's glory. Howard Carter discovered the pharaoh's nearly intact tomb in 1922 in...
