Can we sue the bank that bought a foreclosed house who is still collecting even if the owner has a discharge order? 3 Answers as of December 26, 2013

My fiancé filed bankruptcy and foreclosed on her home via a lawyer in 2009. This was in the state of Maine. She paid a flat $3,500 fee for this service. It went through the court process seamlessly and she has a discharge order. A year or so after, she was notified of the loan being sold to another bank. We started getting collection calls and letters from the new bank shortly after. In October, they started foreclosing on the house that was already foreclosed on 4 years ago. It is now showing up on her credit reports. Initially we contacted her lawyer who has not responded to mail, email or voice mails. Then we sent cease and desist letters to both banks with copies of all court documents. The collection efforts have not stopped. Can we clean this up and sue them for damages?
