The issue raised on summary judgement in the instant complaint to determine nondischargeability of debt for willful and malicious injury is not whether the debtor's conduct in torching his own automobile in which the plaintiff held a security interest was willful and malicious. Rather, it is whether such willful and malicious conduct was satisfactorily proven at an earlier trial in a State court so as to bar relitigation of the issue in the present context. For the reasons stated, the complaint will be granted on summary judgement and the debt will be determined to be nondischargeable.
