In re Stork, 212 B.R. 970 (Bankr. N.D. Cal. 1997)
Great Western Bank conducted a foreclosure sale on June 17, 1997, the debtor filed bankruptcy two hours later, and the Trustee’s Deed upon Sale was recorded sixteen days after the bankruptcy filing without obtaining relief from stay. The Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of California granted a motion filed by Malcolm Cisneros on behalf of the Bank to annul the automatic stay to validate the recording of the Trustee’s Deed upon Sale.
