In Rubin v. Ross, 65 Cal. App. 5th 153 (Cal. App. 4th 2021), the California Court of Appeal for the Fourth Appellate District held that the automatic stay protections afforded all debtors in a bankruptcy proceeding pursuant to 11 U.S.C. § 362 did not prevent a judgment creditor from renewing a judgment against the debtor while the automatic stay was still in place. The court further held that although the automatic stay did not prevent the judgment creditor from renewing its judgment, 11 U.S.C. § 108(c) nevertheless extended the judgment creditor’s time to renew the judgment until thirty days after the automatic stay was terminated.
