In re Cecilia Gonzalez

21 B 1498
Mortgagee Byline Bank sought to vacate confirmation of Debtor’s chapter 13 plan under Fed. R. Civ. P. 60(b).  HELD: Motion denied.  First, Byline’s mistake in confusing this debtor with another did not support relief under Rule 60(b)(1) for “mistake, inadvertence, surprise, or excusable neglect.”  Second, Byline presented no evidence to support its claim that fraud justified relief from the confirmation order under Rule 60(b)(3).  Third, Byline’s allegations did not rise to the level of extraordinary circumstances that must be found for a court to provide relief from an order for “any other reason that justifies” it under Rule 60(b)(6).  Byline did not contend that the confirmation order was void and should be vacated under Rule 60(b)(4).  Nevertheless, the court considered this argument and determined that Debtor provided Byline with notice that satisfied the requirements of due process.
