In re Thomas

(Bankr. E.D. Ky. Mar. 1, 2018)

The bankruptcy court denies the debtors’ motion to seal a settlement agreement they reached with an adversary proceeding defendant. The debtors stated that if the documents were not sealed, the other party would not agree to the settlement. However, the debtors failed to provide any evidence to establish that the circumstances warranted the relief requested. Public access to court records should only be restricted in appropriate circumstances. Opinion below.

Judge: Wise

Attorneys for the Debtors: Strauss Troy, Robert R. Sparks; Matthew T. Sanning
