In re Conco, Inc.

(Bankr. W.D. Ky. Nov. 12, 2014)

The bankruptcy court grants the chapter 11 debtor’s motions to modify subpoenas and for a protective order. The creditor’s subpoenas for documents and depositions of the debtor’s principals were overbroad in that they sought information outside the scope of the debtor’s proposed plan and the creditor’s objection to the plan. The court modifies the subpoenas so that they do not require the production of certain documents and testimony, including documents and testimony related to negotiations resulting in the proposed plan. Opinion below.

The following opinions were recently made available on the website for the Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Indiana.

I will continue to check this Court’s website routinely and report on opinions that appear there.

Sep. 18, 2014) – Denial of the department’s motions for default judgment in nondischargeability actions, alleging debtors inappropriately accepted benefits. The debtors were in default for failure to timely respond to the complaints. However, the complaints failed to set out a prima facie claim of obtaining funds by false representations and thus default judgments were denied. Opinions below.
