Debtor filed motion to reopen case seeking declaratory judgment that the pre-petition Charging Order held by respondent had been extinguished by the order of discharge. The United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Maryland, Duncan W. Keir, J., held that under Maryland law, the Charging Order constituted a pre-petition lien on certain partnership interests of the debtor, and that the rights of the holder of the charging order remained unaffected by the order of discharge.
Terri Lynn Sneider, Esq. for the Debtor. Patrick C. McKeever, Esq. for respondent, Academy of American Franciscan History, Inc., and Robert Brownwell, Esq. for respondent Wheeler & Korpeck, LLC.
