Date of Decision:
February 7, 2019
Whether the debtor-defendant's discharge of debts should be denied under 11 U.S.C. § 727(a)(2) or (4) or, alternatively, whether the plaintiff's claim against the debtor-defendant should be excepted from discharge under 11 U.S.C. § 523(a)(2), (4), or (6)?
Because the Court found he had fraudulently transferred and extinguished assets and was not truthful regarding information he provided in his required bankruptcy documents, the debtor-defendant was denied a general discharge of debts under 11 U.S.C. § 727(a)(2)(A) and 11 U.S.C. § 727(a)(4)(A).
