Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 48 F.3d 1224 (8th Cir. 1995) Submitted: Dec. 13, 1994. Filed: Feb. 28, 1995

Before McMILLIAN, FAGG, and BOWMAN, Circuit Judges.


Duane and Janis Olson's appeal challenges the bankruptcy court's denial of the Olsons' 11 U.S.C. § 502(j) motion to reconsider a federal tax claim. Having carefully reviewed the record and the parties' briefs, we conclude the bankruptcy court did not abuse its discretion in denying the motion. See Halverson v. Estate of Cameron (In re Mathiason), 16 F.3d 234, 239 (8th Cir. 1994) (standard of review). Because the controlling law is clear and an opinion would have no precedential value, we affirm without an extended opinion. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.
