Melnor Inc. v. Corey (In re Corey)

Defendant debtor challenged a decision of the Bankruptcy Court for the District of Kansas that found that defendant creditor's claim against him was non-dischargeable pursuant to 11 U.S.C.S. § 523(a)(2)(A). The bankruptcy court granted summary judgment for the creditor because it concluded that a prior judgment that the creditor had obtained in federal district court in Virginia had determined that the debt was procured by fraud.
Ruling: 
Bankruptcy court properly held that default judgment for debtor's failure to appear at trial was nondischargeable.
