Kansas Bankruptcy Court Denies Motion to Extend Deadline to Object to Discharge When Debtor Has Been Cooperative, Courts in the 10th Circuit Must Strictly Enforce the Discharge Objections Deadline.

On March 7, 2019 the Bankruptcy Court for the District of Kansas denied a creditor’s motion to extend the deadline to file an adversary proceeding to determine dischargeability of the underlying debt. On September 25, 2018 the Debtor filed for relief under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code. The Bank of Holyrood (Bank) is a creditor who filed a claim for more than $600,000.00. Bank’s counsel entered its appearance within two weeks of the bankruptcy filing, attended the 341 meeting of creditors and the trustee’s 2004 exam of the Debtor.

The Bank was active in the bankruptcy. The Bank filed a motion for relief from stay and also objected to the trustee’s motion to sell assets.

On December 19, 2018, approximately 12 days before the dischargeability deadline, the Bank filed a motion requesting an additional 60 days to object to discharge and set the motion for hearing on February 14, 2019.
