In re Smith, 243 B.R. 169 (Bankr. N.D. Ga 1999)

Scott Benjamin Riddle

Practice Area:Bankruptcy / Chapter 7

Outcome:Judgment for the Involuntary Debtor

Description:This is the seminal case in the District on bad faith filing of involuntary bankruptcy cases.

Prior to a separate trial on damages, the case was settled for a high six-figure amount.
