My question involves bankruptcy in the state of: NY

If the entity your suing or about to sue files bankruptcy before you can bring a claim that they obtained some of your money by fraud and experienced personal injury based on the fraud, and the finding of fraud is liquidated in the claims process which would support your personal injury claim, then is that now a debt that is an exception to discharge under 11 U.S. Code  523? Or does the court need to find also that the defendant acted with malice?
