Thurmond v. Rajapakse (In re Rajapakse)

Ruling: 
Order directing the debtors to turn over property located outside the United States was granted since estate property includes that located inside or outside the United States.
Procedural posture: 
The chapter 7 trustee moved, pursuant to 11 U.S.C. § 521(4), for an order directing the debtors to turn over and account for certain property located outside the United States. The debtors contended that the disputed property was not property of the estate and was therefore beyond the bankruptcy court's jurisdiction.
