123701P.pdf 03/05/2014 Frank Williams v. Chester King U.S. Court of Appeals Case No: 12-3701 Appeal from the Bankruptcy Appellate Panel for the Eighth Circuit [PUBLISHED] [Bye, Author, with Chief Judge Riley and Gruender, Circuit Judges] Bankruptcy Case - sanctions. Bankruptcy court's finding that a portion of debt Williams sought to collect in state court was pre-conversion debt was not clearly erroneous. Bankruptcy court's grant of sanctions against counsel for seeking to collect pre-conversion debt was not an abuse of discretion and the court did not clearly err in refusing to allow collection of post-conversion debt because Williams had failed to prove amount of post-conversion debt. Bankruptcy court did not abuse its discretion in denying second motion for relief. 132648U.pdf 03/05/2014 United States v.
