Bankruptcy: Foreign Judgment Registration-Set Aside-Finality of Orders

Where a law firm challenged a judgment setting aside the registration of an order of the bankruptcy court awarding the firm fees and expenses in the debtor’s bankruptcy proceeding, the debtor failed to comply with the provisions of the law for setting aside a foreign judgment registration, and the trial court erred in setting aside the registration on the basis that the order was not a final judgment of the bankruptcy court.

Judgment is reversed.
