United States of America v. Susquehanna Bank

Appellee's Brief


The Internal Revenue Service appealed a grant of summary judgment favoring Mr. Valkenet's client, Susquehanna Bank. The Maryland bankruptcy court granted the bank's indemnity deed of trust priority over IRS tax liens by operation of Maryland's "relation back" recording statutes.

This is our brief for the Appellee arguing statutory construction governing tax lien priorities.
