Denial of discharge

Penalty for debtor misconduct with respect to the bankruptcy case or creditors as a whole.  The grounds on which the debtor’s discharge may be denied are found in 11 U.S.C. 727.  When the debtor’s discharge is denied, the debts that could have been discharged in that case cannot be discharged in any subsequent bankruptcy.  The administration of the case, the liquidation of assets and the recovery of avoidable transfers, continues for the benefit of creditors.
