Dean v. Lane (In re Lane)

(Bankr. W.D. Ky. Feb. 21, 2018)

The bankruptcy court grants the debtor’s motion to dismiss the nondischargeability action. The plaintiffs asserted a personal injury claim against the debtor, but they were unable to proceed with prosecution of the claim due to the automatic stay. The plaintiffs filed a complaint objecting to the discharge of this claim. The court dismisses the case, holding it does not have jurisdiction to liquidate or estimate the claim because personal injury claims have not been referred to the bankruptcy court, pursuant to LR 83.12(a). Opinion below.

Judge: Lloyd

Plaintiffs: Pro Se

Attorneys for Debtor: Seiller Waterman LLC, Neil Charles Bordy
