FTC v. Abeyta (In re Abeyta)

Ruling: 
Judgment for FTC violations was nondischargeable.
Procedural posture: 
Plaintiff Federal Trade Commission (FTC) sought summary judgment on a claim that a prior judgment (Judgment) rendered on summary judgment against debtor for violations of § 5(a) of the Federal Trade Commission Act, 15 U.S.C.S. § 13(b), was nondischargeable in debtor's chapter 11 under 11 U.S.C.S. § 523(a)(2)(A). At issue was whether the Judgment collaterally estopped debtor from contesting the FTC claim that the Judgment was nondischargeable.
