Can a company discharge a judgment for employment discrimination in bankruptcy?

Asked almost 3 years ago - Las Vegas, NV

If Company "C" has been sued for employment discrimination, can C discharge the claim, or any judgment resulting from that claim in bankruptcy?

Are there circumstances when such a claim or damages from such a claim may not be discharged?

Thanks

    Answered . The claim could be discharged. Fradulent claims can be challenged as non-dsichareable, but this is a factual analysis that requires some expertise.

    Answered . More likely than not it is dischargeable. There are pigeon hole exceptions to dischargability but it will probably be difficult to fit this claim into one of them. You need a lawyer to analyze the details of your claim to get the best opinion.
