In re Stalnaker (08-52156, Adv. No. 08-05092)

The plaintiff did not establish the collateral estoppel effect of a state court tortious interference action on her ยง 523(a)(6) claim because she failed to prove an identity of issues. The plaintiff did not show the standard applied in the state court, and therefore the Court could not determine if the state court jury found that debtor had acted wilfully and maliciously.
