In re: Riebesell, 09-1072

In a bankruptcy adversary proceeding seeking to prevent the discharge of a debt owed to plaintiff by his attorney (the debtor), judgment for plaintiff is affirmed where: 1) the parties had an attorney-client relationship during the relevant period under Colorado law; 2) the loans to defendant were not "standard commercial transactions" exempt from the requirements of Colo. R. Prof'l Conduct 1.8(a); and 3) the bankruptcy court's finding that defendant had the requisite intent to deceive plaintiff was not clearly erroneous.
