In re Kekauoha-Alisa, 09-60019

The bankruptcy court's avoidance of a foreclosure sale is affirmed, where the lack of adequate public announcement that the foreclosure sale had been postponed violated Hawaii's nonjudicial foreclosure statute, and this defect was a deceptive practice under Hawaii law; but 2) the case is remanded to the bankruptcy court for a proper calculation of attorneys' fees and damages, where the bankruptcy court made no finding that the enumerated damages were caused by and fairly traceable to the mortgagee's improper postponement.
