Phi Air Medical, LLC v. Westenhoefer (In re White)

(Bankr. E.D. Ky. Nov. 11, 2016)

The bankruptcy court grants summary judgment in favor of the trustee in this declaratory judgment action, in which the plaintiff sought a judgment that certain health insurance proceeds were not property of the estate. The plaintiff argued that the debtor had assigned the proceeds to it prior to the bankruptcy, but the court holds that the evidence presented did not establish such assignment. The debtor’s spouse had signed the document for him, but the debtor’s spouse did not have the requisite agency authority to do so. Opinion below.

Judge: Schaaf

Attorney for Plaintiff: Stites & Harbison PLLC, Chrisandrea L. Turner

Attorney for Defendant: Barber Law PLLC, T. Kent Barber
