Issue: Does the Bankruptcy Code's automatic stay, 11 U.S.C. §362, take precedence over a mortgage lender's right under the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act, 12 U.S.C. §2609(a)(2), to require a borrower to deposit additional funds into his escrow account after filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy protection when those funds are needed to cover the borrower's anticipated post-petition taxes, insurance, and other escrow obligations?
