If a surrogate court surcharges a trustee and then the trustee declares bankruptcy, does this wipe out the surcharge?
I'm not sure what you mean. The trustee owes you money and files for a bk? It owes the court money?
The above is general legal and business analysis. It is not "legal advise" but analysis, and different lawyers may analyse this matter differently, especially if there are additional facts not reflected in the question.
