Judges of the Court
In re Majewski, 310 F.3d 653 (9th Cir. 2002)
§ 525 is not applicable to a person who announces his intention to file for bankruptcy, but has not yet filed.
In re Turner, 199 B.R. 694 (9th Cir. B.A.P. 1996)
Because satisfaction of the debt is irrelevant for purposes of § 525(a), the court properly refused to hear evidence that the debt was satisfied. This conclusion encompasses Turner’s contention that the court should not have dismissed her case before requiring the DRE to comply with her discovery requests. Since the court properly determined that there were no facts Turner could prove that would give her relief under § 525(a), discovery was irrelevant.
