(Bankr. S.D. Ind. Sep. 7, 2017)
The bankruptcy court enters judgment in favor of the debtor, granting a discharge in her bankruptcy case. The U.S. Trustee brought the action under § 727(a)(2)(B) and (a)(4)(A), alleging the debtor intentionally failed to disclose $5,000 she held in a lockbox on the petition date. The Court finds the debtor did not have the requisite intent and was unsure of what she was supposed to do at the 341 meeting based on a misunderstanding or miscommunication with her lawyer. Opinion below.
Attorney for U.S. Trustee: Jeanette Eisan Hinshaw
Attorney for Debtor: Joseph L. Mulvey
