Hanszen Laporte Case Makes New Law Across the Land: Client Wins Big on Remand From U.S. Supreme Court
April 24, 2017
Changing decades of legal precedent, following a U.S. Supreme Court ruling in May 2016 that debtors cannot avoid paying their bills by fraudulently transferring assets and then filing for bankruptcy, a bankruptcy judge has awarded Colorado-based Husky International Electronics $650,000.00 against Houston businessman Daniel Lee Ritz, Jr. The award, won by Hanszen Laporte’s Jeffrey L. Dorrell, hits against Chrysalis’ owner-director Ritz personally. The landmark decision and subsequent ruling set a new standard for fraud in bankruptcy cases nationwide.
