I want to file a civil suit against former tennants for the damage that they did to my house - over $4,000. I understand the moneyfor rent is dischargeable under Chapter 7. They were evicted in June and ammended their Chapter 7 to include my civil suit of rent money unpaid. They intentionally damaged my home by letting their animals urinate all over my hardwood floors, damaged screens, left trash, and left the kitchen appliances filthy (plus more). Can I file a civil suit because of the intentional damage to my home? Do I have to get the bankruptcy court to reopen the case and get approval from them first before going through with the civil suit?So can I continue with the civil suit? Then go to the bankruptcy court to see if I am allowed to collect. Thanks so much for your help. I still do not understand how destroying property is not criminal?!
