Challenged the withdrawal transaction, pointing to oddities in the case and omissions of lower courts

In bankruptcy proceedings, we challenged the sale of a premium car.

The buyer provided a receipt to the effect that the debtor had received money from him in payment for the car, and in the first round of the case the courts refused to recognize the transaction as invalid.

We were able to have the dispute remanded for a new trial. The court of cassation agreed with our argument that it was unusual for a debtor to write a receipt for money long after the transaction. In our case, it was already written during the bankruptcy, even though the car had been sold several years before. Representatives of the bankrupt and the buyer could not give clear explanations on this issue.

In addition, the court of appeals agreed that it was necessary to investigate whether the buyer had enough money to buy the expensive car.

On retrial, our claims were fully satisfied.
