An adversary proceeding is a lawsuit filed within a bankruptcy. It’s filed when someone in the process, such as the trustee, the creditors, or the filer, has a complaint with another party to the bankruptcy. It could be because one party thinks another party has violated the rules, or because one party believes they should not be held liable for a debt.
There are a few common types of adversary proceedings in bankruptcy. Some are filed by the person who filed the bankruptcy…some are filed by the bankruptcy trustee…..and some are filed by creditors of the person filing bankruptcy.
