Irvin v. Faller (In re Faller)

(Bankr. W.D. Ky. July 9, 2014)

The bankruptcy court denies the defendant’s motion to disqualify the plaintiff’s law firm, Harned Bachert & McGehee, PSC. The defendant claimed that he had communications with the law firm prior to the action that related to the allegations in the plaintiff’s nondischargeability complaint. The court denied the motion, finding that even if the defendant had been a potential client of the firm, there was no evidence that he had revealed anything significantly harmful to his defense in this adversary proceeding. Opinion below.
