(Seventh Circuit July 2, 2014)
The Seventh Circuit affirms the bankruptcy court’s order granting the creditor’s motion for judgment on the pleadings in the nondischargeability action. The debtor’s fraudulent intent was established in the prior state court action, in which he was held liable for fraud and slander of title. Thus, the debtor was collaterally estopped from raising the issue of his fraudulent intent in the nondischargeability action. Opinion below.
