Can I transfer my bankruptcy case from the Eastern District to the Western District of WA
Asked in Seattle, WA - 8 months
Filed in 2006 and received a discharge in Walla Walla. I then moved to Seattle. Later, a business partner, through an attorney that he hired for me (partner refused to work with my attorney), convinced me to sign a promissory note, telling me that the IP needed to be taken out of the BK estate to be used by our LLC. I never received any money, property, or anything else in return for the note. He reopened the case and the BK court transferred title as a good-faith purchaser to the partner. Long story short, we had a huge legal battle over the last 2 years and the court here dismissed my counterclaim without prejudice for recovery of the asset. I now need to reopen the case and litigate ownership. Can I change venue to the Western District? Any other thoughts on the issues?
