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.
