Sartin v. Macik

Defendant debtor appealed from a judgment of the District Court for the Western District of North Carolina affirming the bankruptcy court's determination that a debt arising from a state court default judgment entered in favor of plaintiff creditors was nondischargeable under 11 U.S.C.S. § 523(a)(2), (4), and (6) because the default judgment had collateral estoppel effect.
Ruling: 
Default judgment that did not have collateral estoppel effect under state law could not be determinative of dischargeability.
