Types of Adversary Proceedings
Generally, there are three main types of adversary proceedings. What differs between them is either the party being sued or the person filing the lawsuit. The most common types of adversary proceedings are:
- Bankruptcy trustees suing third parties to bring additional assets into the estate
- Bankruptcy trustees suing anyone the debtor had cause of action against before the filing
- Creditors suing debtors to object the discharge of debts owed to them
