Ex-Ophthalmologist cannot discharge her student loans

| Mar 16, 2013 | Bankruptcy |

In a decision by Judge Brian Kenney of the Eastern district of Virginia, Bankruptcy Court, an ophthalmologist was told she could not eliminate her student loans through bankruptcy. However, the evidence established that the ophthalmologist was living in her car; she failed to show that she was able to find employment in a position other than being an ophthalmologist. They also ruled that she failed to attempt to repay her loans (In re Najafian).
