Legal Question in Bankruptcy in Maryland

Judgments obtained close to a Ch. 11 filing

Is there anything in the Code that addresses the setting aside of judgments, obtained within a certain time prior to a Ch. 11 filing, so that they are not a part of the bankruptcy? This would involve the filing of an individual Ch. 11, debts incurred through business operations. Thank you for your help.

Judgment liens can be set aside as preferences, or on other grounds, in a bankruptcy, but I'm not sure what you mean by "not part of the bankruptcy." All creditors have to be part of the bankruptcy.
