who is objecting and why
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
I'll do my best to fill you in...
It is a creditor (actually an individual that had a judgment against us for a personal promissory note of 25k). The Plaintiffs claim is that we failed to disclose their debt in our filing. The fact is it was testified to the trustee by the attorney that filed our 7 that it was a clerical error and that he would correct the error and it was corrected - without requiring any addition info from us as we had provided it upon our initial meeting. Actually, the Plaintiff's name was listed - the amount was the only incorrect info. There was absolutely no intent to conceal the info and no proof of intent to conceal.
The Judge that heard the Motion for Default Judgment scolded the Plaintiffs Attorney for their actions - We understand it's extremely odd for this to be filed. The Plaintiff has unlimited funds and is harassing us, basically.

Sorry, hard to explain briefly - please let me know if you need any additional info.

So you are involved in an adversarial proceeding?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
Yes that is correct.
Expert:  Ellen replied 7 years ago.
I am going to opt out. I believe that advice on an adversarial proceeding is beyond the scope of my ability to properly answer you on this forum. Another expert may assist you
