(Bankr. N.D. Ind. Dec. 19, 2014)
The bankruptcy court denies the plaintiff’s motion for summary judgment in this nondischargeability action. The plaintiff’s motion asserted the debtor was collaterally estopped from arguing facts contrary to those deemed admitted by him in the prepetition state court action. The court states that requests for admission are only good for the proceeding in which they are made and have no bearing in subsequent litigation. Such facts cannot support a claim of collateral estoppel. Opinion below.
