I believe they can, yes. There might possibly be more to the story that would point otherwise, for example if they committed outright fraud that would be a problem for them.
I agree with the conclusion of the other attorney answers. However, I currently represent a Chapter 7 client who has a large civil sanction in the form of an attorneys fee award. The attorneys fees were awarded the creditor for my clients violation of court orders and misrepresentations. The creditor is objection to discharge on the grounds that my clients intentionally injured the creditor. Intentional injury is an exception to discharge.
I believe the creditor's position is not well-founded. But, the case illustrates that creative and aggressive creditors may challenge discharge of civil court sanctions, and that debtors will have the expense of defending such allegations, regardless of ultimate merit.
You should not rely upon this answer as legal advice or a legal opinion, and this answer does not create between us an attorney-client relationship. Please consult your own attorney for legal advice.
