Janet A. Lawson Bankruptcy Attorney | Janet Lawson
Any debt or claim that existed before you filed chapter 7 is discharged. Inadvertently omitted creditors are discharged in a "no asset" case. Provide proof of the bankruptcy the opposing attorney. If they don't dismiss the civil case, file an action in the bankruptcy case for sanctions. A knowledgeable bankruptcy attorney knows how to do this.

If I understand what you are asking, you had a possible employment lawsuit claim when you filed your Chapter 7 and did not disclose it in your schedules, then you need to get in touch with your Chapter 7 attorney immediately to disclose the potential asset by amending your Schedules and Statement of Financial Affairs or you could lose the right to collect on the suit.

You do not appear to be eligible to file a Chapter 7 right now and receive a discharge. While technically you could file Chapter 7, it would only protect you for 4 months or so and at the end, you would have no discharge and your unexempt property would be liquidated by the bankruptcy trustee. The requirement is that you have at least 8 years between filing another Chapter 7 to receive a discharge eliminating debts. If you need bankruptcy protection, you could file a Chapter 13 and make payments for up to 5 years through a trustee to obtain a discharge at the conclusion. Whether this is a worthwhile option would require an assessment of your finances.
