Pre 2005-Act
Ruling: 
Bankruptcy court lacked jurisdiction to enforce settlement of action for violation of discharge injunction.
Procedural posture: 
After debtor won a discharge in a chapter 7 bankruptcy and the case was closed, debtor filed a claim against defendant creditor which claimed that it had violated the discharge injunction. The case was reopened but the parties settled the claim before an adversary complaint could be filed. Debtor then moved again to reopen the case pursuant to 11 U.S.C. § 350 to enforce the ensuing settlement agreement, which motion was opposed by the creditor.
