deficiency judgement after bankruptcy discharge
We were in the process of working out a short sale and had to file bankruptcy. the short sale is still being worked out. The debt on the house was discharged. But can the lender file a deficiency judgment for the difference after the short sale. I assume that whole debt was already discharged.

If the debt was discharged as it should have been, there would be no deficiency judgment.
You may want to seek legal advice on whether it makes sense to do a short sale under the circumstances and thereby assume the liabilities of a seller. It may be better just to let the lender foreclose.
