Cornerstone Industries Corp. v. Kaufman (In re Kaufman)

(Bankr. W.D. Ky. Aug. 6, 2015)

The bankruptcy court enters summary judgment in favor of the plaintiff, holding a $1.8 million claim arising from a state court judgment non-dischargeable. The state court judgment has preclusive effect, and the jury’s findings establish the requisite elements under § 523(a)(2) and (a)(6). The court discusses the applicability of § 523(a)(4) but because the jury may not have defined the term “fiduciary” the same as the bankruptcy code, the court states it is not convinced the plaintiff is entitled to summary judgment under that particular section. Opinion below.
