Scotus Denies Cert in Fee Harvesting Case

Posted by NCBRC - June 14, 2022

The Supreme Court denied certiorari in the case of Sensenich v. PHH Mortgage Corp., No. 21-1322 (cert denied, June 13, 2022). The Chapter 13 Trustee sought reversal of the Second Circuit decision that the bankruptcy court lacked the power to monetarily sanction PHH Mortgage Corp. for its fee harvesting practice which violated Bankruptcy Rule 3002.1. The Second Circuit held that the bankruptcy rule did not allow for punitive damages. The circuit court also held that the award could not be justified under the court’s inherent power because the bankruptcy court did not analyze that ground.
