Timothy Duggan, Esq., Shareholder and Chair of Stark & Stark’s Bankruptcy & Creditors’ Rights Group, authored the article “Ad Valorem Tax Certificates: Are Tax Liens Subject to Anti-Modification under §511?,” which was published in the September 2014 edition of the American Bankruptcy Institute Journal.

The article discusses the recent case of Princeton Office Park v. Plymouth Park Tax Services, which ultimately made its way to the Supreme Court of New Jersey. The Court reviewed and clarified an “important and unresolved issue in New Jersey Law.” Mr. Duggan said of the Court’s clarification, “In New Jersey, the case law is now clear and provides guidance for practitioners in states with similar statutory schemes. However, a careful reading of the controlling state’s law is crucial, and general citations to bankruptcy court decisions will not carry the day.”
