Pro Bono Client Secures Appellate Victory in Bankruptcy Case

North America - United States | United States - Indiana

Our firm won an appellate victory for a pro bono client referred by the Southern District of Indiana Bankruptcy Pro Bono Panel. The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana affirmed a decision of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Indiana in favor of the pro bono client.

The court held that an ex-wife could discharge obligations arising from her receipt of alleged child support overpayments. The case involved the proper legal standard for determining the dischargeability of a debt under 11 U.S.C. § 523(a)(2)(A) and interesting questions regarding legal emancipation under Indiana law.
