Wagner v. Stanko (In re Stanko), 2007 BNH 019, issued 5/4/07 (Vaughn, C.J.), not published (denying motion to dismiss under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 12(b)(6) because, at this point in the litigation, the plaintiff’s claims arising from a contract between the two parties are viable).
In re Wyatt, 2007 BNH 020, issued 5/10/07 (Vaughn, C.J.), published (denying creditor’s motions to seal the court’s docket and to hold hearings in camera because the movant failed to show justification for such measures under 11 U.S.C. § 107; denying creditor’s motion to reconsider disallowance of his claim because the motion to reconsider was untimely, the creditor failed to show cause under 11 U.S.C. § 502(j), and the former conservator’s due process rights were not violated; denying creditor’s motion to convert case to Chapter 7 because the order confirming the plan has res judicata effect with regard to the debtor’s eligibility for Chapter 13 relief).
