In re Webb

Ruling: 
Sanctions properly imposed against creditor and counsel for pursuing sheriff's sale in violation of stay as lis pendens did not exempt property from the estate.
Procedural posture: 
Appellants, creditor and his counsel, appealed from an order of the Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Ohio, Eastern Division, at Cleveland, that imposed sanctions against them in the amount of $4405.23 for willful violation of the automatic stay when they were found in contempt for continuing to prosecute a state-court foreclosure action against the debtor's residence postpetition.
