Second Motion to Dismiss Granted & Hearing Cancelled due to lack of evidence to support the claims
Bankruptcy Attorney Timothy S. Kingcade, founding partner of Miami-based Kingcade Garcia McMaken successfully obtained an Order for his client in a Chapter 7 case, granting a Second Motion to Dismiss and cancelling a hearing scheduled for July 25, 2018.
“We are extremely pleased with the victory obtained for our client today. The allegations stated in the Complaint lacked sufficient evidence to support the claims. It was simply assumed that actions taken by Torres and PSI petroleum, LLC assigned liability to our client, without providing sufficient and specific allegations. The law was on our side in this case,” Kingcade said.
On March 5, 2018, the Plaintiffs in the case: Milan Gohil and GMC Law Firm, PLLC filed an adversary proceeding seeking a judgement against the Defendant. The complaint alleged three counts: (1.) False Pretenses, Fraud & Nondischargeability; (2.) False Financial Statements & Non-Dischargeability, and (3.) GMC Law Firm Claim for Attorney’s Fees. The Order Granting the First Motion to Dismiss included a provision that allowed the Plaintiffs to file an amended complaint, and on May 6, 2018 the Plaintiffs filed an Amended Complaint to Determine Dischargeability of Debt. On May 18, 2018, Defendants filed the Second Motion to Dismiss stating the plaintiffs did not plead their claims for relief as required by law.
A court “weighing a motion to dismiss asks ‘not weather a plaintiff will ultimately prevail but whether the claimant is entitled to offer evidence to support the claims.’” (quoting Scheurer v. Rhodes). Federal Rule of Bankruptcy Procedure 7012, adopting Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 12, authorizes the court to dismiss a complaint that fails to state a claim upon which relief may be granted.
The Order directs the Second Motion to Dismiss be granted, all pending motions are denied as moot and the hearing on July 25, 2018 be cancelled.
