If you ARE a paralegal, why are you wasting Martha and other's time on here? Do what PARALEGALS do...look up the law on the Internet...........

But I believe, due to privacy laws, that I will have to petition the court to get this list...at least I can do this. Then, we may, as a force, have some recourse.
Bankruptcy (and ERISA) is a matter of federal law. A local bankruptcy lawyer can at least clarify the facts for you and give you an indication as to whether you have some kind of case. FWIW I represented creditors in bankruptcy cases all over the country, sometimes directly after obtaining permission from the court and sometimes simply working with a local lawyer.

I'll give you a pass on the rude statement as you are clearly frustrated. The law involves a mix of facts, procedure and substantive law and "looking it up on the internet" could lead you down all sorts of wrong paths. From what you have said you do not have a clear handle on job one: what are the facts.
