Published Decisions

Malcolm Cisneros has been on the cutting edge of issues of first impression in the Courts which has led to the publication of a number of opinions by both the Bankruptcy and Appellate Courts.

Malcolm Cisneros was directly responsible for the very first opinion ever published in the United States on the issue of the Bankruptcy Courts’ ability to grant in rem relief from stay. The firm prevailed on the issue at a time when most Bankruptcy Judges were reluctant to grant such relief because the Bankruptcy Code did not specifically authorize it. Many other Judges followed suit after the publication of that decision, resulting in one of the most important published decisions affecting timeline performance.

Since our inception in 1992, Malcolm Cisneros has been strong and zealous advocates for the servicing industry. Such advocacy has resulted in several published decisions that are seminal cases favoring creditors.
