Debts Incurred By Trickery or Deception; In re: Jonathan M. Morris (Judge Glenn)

As you know, all debts are not necessarily dischargeable in bankruptcy.  Here is one that you may not have thought of that involves "deception or trickery" where an employee had a conflict with between his employer, and his personal company that was in the same business.

In re: Jonathan M. Morris, a chapter 7 case with Judge Glenn dated May 8, 2018:

[T]he Court finds that the Debtor incurred a debt to Rimrock by deception or trickery, and by misappropriating a business opportunity that had been entrusted to him by Rimrock. Consequently, the debt is nondischargeable in the Debtor's Chapter 7 case pursuant to § 523(a)(2)(A) and § 523(a)(4) of the Bankruptcy Code.
