Summary Judgment Obtained as a Result of Failure to List Lawsuit as Asset in Bankruptcy Plan

R. Brantley Adams obtained summary judgment for an insurance provider in a motor vehicle accident case in Hinds County, Mississippi. Prior to the filing of the lawsuit, plaintiff filed for bankruptcy. The court found that the plaintiff failed to update her bankruptcy plan and list the lawsuit as an asset in her bankruptcy proceedings and was judicially estopped from pursuing the claim after her debt was discharged.
