New Chapter 11 Filing – Navient Solutions, LLC
On February 8, 2021, creditors filed an involuntary petition against Navient Solutions, LLC, the servicing arm of Navient Corporation, which manages nearly $300 billion in student loans for more than 12 million debtors after its 2014 split from Sallie Mae. The Petitioning Creditors, who previously owed student debt serviced by Navient, allege insolvency based on, among other things, pending lawsuits that allege the Putative Debtor “misappropriated $4 billion” from the U.S. government and questions over the status of its federal servicing contract. The Petitioning Creditors allege that the Debtor holds $87.4 billion in assets and $85 billion in liabilities. A copy of the involuntary petition and the Petitioning Creditors’ statement in support of the involuntary petition can be found here.
