Wheatley v. Oklahoma Tower & Energy Services, LLC (In re Alliance Management Services, LLC)

(Bankr. W.D. Ky. Jan. 23, 2018)

The bankruptcy court enters summary judgment against the defendant in this preference action. The trustee served requests for admissions on the defendant, but the defendant failed to submit timely responses. The trustee sought entry of summary judgment based on the requests for admission being deemed admitted. The bankruptcy court finds that the admissions satisfy the trustee’s burden, and summary judgment in the amount of $125,282 is appropriate.

Liz Transport, Inc. v. Haifley (In re Haifley)

(Bankr. N.D. Ind. Dec. 19, 2014)

The bankruptcy court denies the plaintiff’s motion for summary judgment in this nondischargeability action. The plaintiff’s motion asserted the debtor was collaterally estopped from arguing facts contrary to those deemed admitted by him in the prepetition state court action. The court states that requests for admission are only good for the proceeding in which they are made and have no bearing in subsequent litigation. Such facts cannot support a claim of collateral estoppel. Opinion below.
