Panama City, FLA. - This month, a federal appeals court in New York declared private student loans in bankruptcy were not shielded from discharge. According to the local debt consolidation attorneys, several United States (U.S.) District Court judges have upheld U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Elizabeth Stong's ruling that Navient Solutions LLC violated a prior court order to discharge a borrower's student loans in a 21-page opinion. The major ruling is showing moving in the area of student loans which is unprecedented.  

A representative of the borrower, George Carpinello, told a reporter that the case has a great deal of significance for people who had considered bankruptcy relief but were hesitant because they assumed their private loans would not be discharged.

According to the court, the terms used in the educational benefit provision are an unconventional way to refer to a loan. The court explained that if Congress intended to protect all educational loans against discharge, it would not have used such stilted language. Similar rulings have been rendered by the 5th and 10th US Circuit Courts of Appeals regarding private student loans. Navient asserted in a statement that the appeal relates only to one aspect of the dispute, and it intends to continue presenting defenses regarding the other aspects of the dispute.
