(7th Cir. Dec. 31, 2015)
The Seventh Circuit affirms the bankruptcy court’s decision to deny the motion to reopen the chapter 11 case. The movant sought to reopen the case to pursue pre-petition state law claims of employment discrimination. The matter had been pending in the bankruptcy court during the bankruptcy case, but the movant had failed to diligently pursue the claims at that time. The court finds that the bankruptcy court did not abuse its discretion in denying the motion. Opinion below.
