Stein v. Stubbs (In re Stubbs)

(6th Cir. B.A.P. Mar. 9, 2017)

The Sixth Circuit B.A.P. vacates the bankruptcy court’s orders denying the trustee’s motion for default judgment in the action to revoke the debtor’s discharge. The debtor failed to comply with the court’s order to provide the trustee a copy of her tax return when filed. The appellate court finds the bankruptcy court abused its discretion in denying the trustee’s motion for default judgment where the debtor was properly served with the action and there was no evidence the debtor was not aware of the bankruptcy court’s clear order on the issue. Opinion below.

Judge: Humphrey

Trustee: Sheldon Stein
