In re: Coady, No. 09-11854

In debtor's appeal from a bankruptcy court's order sustaining creditor's objection to the discharge of debtor's debts, the order is affirmed where: 1) debtor acquired and concealed an equitable interest in his wife's businesses; and 2) the doctrine of continuing concealment provides for situations like this, in which a debtor kept his assets out of a creditor's reach during the look-back period by means of a sham ownership arrangement established more than one year before the bankruptcy petition was filed.
