Zadeh v. Nelson (In re Nelson)

(Bankr. E.D. Ky. Nov. 15, 2016)

The Court grants the debtor’s motion to dismiss the nondischargeability action. The debtor’s ex-spouse sought to declare nondischargeable a state court judgment awarding him his overpayment of child support. However, he failed to timely serve the summons and complaint under Bankruptcy rule 7004(e), the statute of limitations barred the claim to the extent it sought relief under § 523(a)(2)(A), and the Rooker-Feldman doctrine prevented the bankruptcy court from ruling on the issue because multiple state courts had already done so. Opinion below.

Judge: Wise

Plaintiff and Defendant: Pro Se
