Educational Credit Mgmt. Corp. v. Jesperson, No. 07-3888
In a bankruptcy action seeking an undue hardship discharge of substantial student loan debts, district court judgment is reversed where defendant is not entitled to an undue hardship discharge under 11 U.S.C. sec. 523(a)(8), as defendant is a recent law school graduate who is reasonably likely to be able to make significant debt repayments in the foreseeable future and qualified for the Department of Education's twenty-five year Income Contingent Repayment Plan.
