Bankruptcy: In re Stuart M. Hanson, 09-04820
Adversary: 6050 Grant LLC v. Hanson, 09-00447
Opinion issued Oct. 5, 2010 by the Honorable John H. Squires
Upshot: After a hearing the Court determined that $93,461.29 owed by the Debtor to 6050 Grant was non-dischargeable under §523(a)(2)(A). Two weeks after entry of the Opinion, Debtor filed a motion to alter it. According to Rule 59(e) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, incorporated here by Bankruptcy Rule 9023, a judgment may be amended based on one or more of the following: the Court’s manifest error of law or fact, newly discovered evidence, or a change in controlling law. Under the circumstances, the Court found none of these conditions, so the judgment stands.
