This will depend on the type of civil litigation. There are very specifc rules when it comes to civil litigation and certain actions (i.e. intentional bodily harm, sexual assualt and wrongful death) fall into a category of debts that are not released by bankruptcy. However, most other civil actions would be covered.

It would be in your best interest to gather up the infomraiton you have pertaining to the type of action this is and have it reviewed by a local trustee, that is the best way for you to be confident how this action will be impacted by the filing of a bankruptcy.
