Section 523(a)(4): Larceny

Section 523(a)(4) provides an exception to the general

discharge for a debtor who wrongfully takes the assets of an

objecting creditor. Larceny is distinguishable from

embezzlement because in larceny, the original taking of the

property must be unlawful. Where payments are lawfully

received pursuant to a contract, larceny cannot exist for

purposes of excepting a discharge.
