Recent Developments In Judicial Estoppel And Dismissal Of Employment Discrimination Suits, Pamela Foohey 2009 Indiana University Maurer School of Law

Recent Developments In Judicial Estoppel And Dismissal Of Employment Discrimination Suits, Pamela Foohey

Pamela Foohey

Judicial estoppel may apply where an individual debtor fails to disclose a pending employment discrimination lawsuit on his or her bankruptcy schedules, effectively asserting a position before the bankruptcy court that the litigation does not exist. In these instances, courts are faced with judicial estoppel’s directive to protect the integrity of the judicial system from perversion and mockery and the Bankruptcy Code’s fundamental principle of the necessity of full disclosure by the debtor, and the Code’s countervailing directive to carry out the orderly and equitable repayment of a debtor’s creditors.

Because both federal and state courts ...
