Antognoni v. Basso (In re Basso)

Pre 2005-Act: 
Pre 2005-Act
Ruling: 
Denial of discharge on theory of "continuing concealment" reversed as homestead declaration announced, rather than hid, interest in property.
Procedural posture: 
Debtor appealed from an order of the Bankruptcy Court for the District of Massachusetts that denied his discharge pursuant to 11 U.S.C.S. § 727(a)(2)(A) and sustained plaintiff creditor's objection to his homestead exemption. The court denied the debtor's discharge under the continuous concealment doctrine, and denied the homestead exemption because he had filed the declaration of homestead in violation of a state court order.
