My question involves bankruptcy in the state of: Pennsylvania
Long story short, my girlfriends parent's got ripped off by a contractor. They have been in litigation for 1.5-2 years now. We just got word from her parents that the contractor filed for bankruptcy and is no longer responsible for his debt. I don't know what chapter, I'll try to find out.
Is there anything they can do about this? Her parents have no money now, they are out around $80k. They are old and the mother is handicapped. They were having a handicap accessible addition put on to the house so the mom can live a better life.
The worst part is that the contractor lives across the street from us, and we can't stand looking at him anymore. He seems to be living it up over there on their (and I'm sure others) money.
Thanks, I'm not the most legal savvy person so let me know if you need more info.
