Linda Nelson, Plaintiff v. Steven D. Zarling, Defendant (In re: Steven D. Zarling)

18 B 35437, 19 A 1009
Creditor sought denial of Debtor/Defendant’s discharge under 11 U.S.C. §§ 727(a)(2), (a)(3) and (a)(4).  Following trial, court found Debtor intended to defraud his creditors when he gave proceeds from a workers’ compensation claim to his brother, who then returned the money in cash payments.  Judgment entered for the creditor under § 727(a)(2).  However, Debtor’s lack of extensive financial records was justified under all the circumstances of the case, and he did not make false oaths with intent to defraud.  Judgment entered for the Debtor under §§ 727(a)(3) and (a)(4).
