Holding: The mere retention of estate property after the filing of a bankruptcy petition does not violate 11 U.S.C. § 362(a)(3), which operates as a “stay” of “any act” to “exercise control” over the property of the estate.
Judgment: Vacated and remanded, 8-0, in an opinion by Justice Alito on January 14, 2021. Justice Sotomayor filed a concurring opinion. Justice Barrett took no part in the consideration or decision of this case.
