After the award of a $7 million judgment by the bankruptcy court against the alter ego of a debtor corporation in an earlier adversary proceeding, a second suit was brought in the bankruptcy court by the successor in interest of the judgment creditor to enforce the judgment by avoiding alleged fraudulent transfers of real and personal property by the alter ego to other non-debtor defendants. Held, the bankruptcy court lacked “related to” subject matter jurisdiction over the second suit because it was so tangential to the bankruptcy case that it would not have a minimal impact on the administration of the debtor’s estate.
