The court denied a creditor’s motion for relief from stay to compel debtor’s specific performance of a pre-petition contract to sell her home. The court found the contract to be executory, as neither party had performed as of the petition date, and it was deemed rejected under § 365(d)(1). The creditor’s right to specific performance is a claim in the bankruptcy case, which can be reduced to money damages. Because the debtor has received a discharge, the creditor is enjoined by the discharge injunction from continuing any action to recover the debt as a personal liability of the debtor.
