The following opinions were recently made available on the website for the Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Indiana. I understand that opinions from this Court may be uploaded as “opinions” at different times (sometimes much later than the date they are issued), depending on the particular Judge and office staff. I will continue to check this Court’s website routinely and report on opinions that appear there.
Ind. Dept. of Workforce Dev. v. Hooks (Bankr. N.D. Ind. Sep. 17, 2014)
Ind. Dept. of Workforce Dev. v. Lucio (Bankr. N.D. Ind Sep. 17, 2014)
Ind. Dept. of Workforce Dev. v. Meredith (Bankr. N.D. Ind. Sep. 17, 2014)
Ind. Dept. of Workforce Dev. v. Quaglo (Bankr. N.D. Ind. Sep. 18, 2014) – Denial of the department’s motions for default judgment in nondischargeability actions, alleging debtors inappropriately accepted benefits. The debtors were in default for failure to timely respond to the complaints. However, the complaints failed to set out a prima facie claim of obtaining funds by false representations and thus default judgments were denied. Opinions below.
In re Double Tree Lake Estates, LLC (Bankr. N.D. Ind. Sep. 18, 2014) – Denial of the debtors’ motion to quash subpoenas served on non-parties. The court rejects the debtors’ procedural arguments and finds that the debtors failed to show the requested information was irrelevant to the case. Opinion below.
