Some states call their trial courts supreme courts. In most states, the supreme court, like the federal Supreme Court, is the highest appellate court in the state. A bankruptcy may not stop a case on appeal to a state supreme court. But if it is a trial court, then bankruptcy can stop a case from going forward. Consult a local bankruptcy lawyer.

Any collection action taken after the filing must be undone by the creditor.If there is a proceeding in a civil court to collect the debt, the appropriate action for the debtor is to notify the court of the filing, giving the name and address of the bankruptcy court, the date of filing and the docket number of the case in the bankruptcy court. This is often called a "suggestion of bankruptcy" or notice of bankruptcy."
