Bankruptcy: Discharge – Imputed Fraud – Partnership

Where debtors filed for bankruptcy after failing to pay their bill for an event held at a hotel, discharge of the husband’s debt to the hotel is reversed and remanded because there was substantial evidence of a partnership between the husband and wife and that both were involved in planning the event, and the evidence also showed that the husband co-owed a relevant trust  and knew or should have known of his wife’s fraud. 

Judgment is reversed and remanded.
