(Bankr. W.D. Ky. Aug. 20, 2015)
The bankruptcy court holds that the creditor may not proceed with a damages hearing in state court, as the liability judgment has already been discharged in the bankruptcy. The creditor requests that the court allow her to challenge the dischargeability of the debt, despite the fact that the deadline for filing complaints to determine dischargeability has already passed. The court finds no basis to permit the late challenge. The creditor had notice of the bankruptcy and simply filed to timely file a complaint. Opinion below.
