SMC Holdings v. McCann, No. 19-6009 (8th Cir. 2019)Annotate this Case
The Bankruptcy Appellate Panel affirmed the bankruptcy court's judgment determining that SMC's claim against debtor was nondischargeable. The panel held that the bankruptcy court's finding that SMC was the proper party holding the claim against debtor was not clearly erroneous. In this case, the bankruptcy court permissibly viewed the evidence as demonstrating that Vinco was only acting on SMC's behalf and that SMC was the real party in interest.
