Legal Question

Asked on: 10/16/13, 1:41 pm

I understand that BK does not discharge a judgment... but if the process to get a judgment has been initiated (i.e., filing and service, but no hearing yet), can the debtor be excused from the obligation? If more details are needed: (1) Renter owes back rent (and agrees it is owed); (2) Suspect renter may be considering BK; (3) If small claims case is initiated to establish the renter is legally obligated to pay back rent, would a subsequent BK by renter exclude the back rent obligation? And is there a critical issue of timing or sequence?
