Thunberg v. Wallick, No. 10-1705 (1st Cir. 2011)Annotate this Case
In 2009 the bankruptcy court revoked a 2000 Chapter 7 discharge, finding fraud with respect to a 1997 divorce settlement. The district court and First Circuit affirmed. While the debtor "largely avoided explicit false statements," the debtor allowed the trustee and the court to believe that he was turning over whatever he received to secured creditors, which was not true, and he withheld information about accelerated payments under the divorce settlement.
