Judge Wilson's ruling in student loan case affirmed by Fourth Circuit

In Educational Credit Management Corp. v. Doane, then Chief Judge Wilson reversed the bankruptcy court and held that the appellant's claim for repayment of the debtor's student loan survived the discharge mistakenly entered by the bankruptcy court using an outdated discharge form.

Today, in this opinion, the Fourth Circuit in a per curiam opinion for the panel of Judges Widener, Williams, and Senior Judge Beezer from the Ninth Circuit, affirmed the ruling by Judge Wilson.
