Tenth Circuit: Opinions, 7/20/10

The Tenth Circuit on Tuesday issued one published opinion and eight unpublished opinions.

Published

In Sovereign Bank v. Hepner, the Court reversed the district court’s decision by finding that the CCTA does not supersede the Colorado UCC with respect to perfection of motor-vehicle liens. Petitioner Bank, which granted a secured loan to purchase a vehicle, perfected by filing within the statutory  time of twenty days, but Debtor filed a voluntary petition under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Colorado before such perfection took place. However, as a purchase money security interest, Petitioner’s lien takes priority over the trustee in bankruptcy’s interest.
