Movants, Chapter 13 Debtors, pro se, sought to compel university to release academic transcripts and diploma earned by Debtors’ daughters during the 2005-2006 academic year. University opposed Debtors’ Motion maintaining that the university’s official policy of withholding transcripts and diplomas of students having delinquent accounts was properly enforced against Debtors’ daughters based upon the unpaid status of their student accounts. The Bankruptcy Court, Duncan W. Keir, Chief J. held that: Debtors’ daughters, and not Debtors, hold rights to the academic transcripts and diploma at issue. The Court found no violation of the automatic stay imposed by 11 U.S.C. §362(a)(3) or 11 U.S.C. §362(a)(6).
