Sturgeon v. Hart County Finance, LLC (In re Sturgeon)

(Bankr. W.D. Ky. Nov. 20, 2015)

The bankruptcy court grants the defendant’s motion to dismiss the adversary proceeding because it lacks jurisdiction over the claim asserted. The debtor listed the claim in his schedules, but the trustee effectively abandoned the claim upon filing his report of no distribution. The debtor then filed the adversary proceeding. The court finds that there is no “related to” jurisdiction because the claim was abandoned, outside the estate, and owned by the debtor. Opinion below.
