Debtor stole my computer

I purchased a home-built computer from a man, but the computer turned out to be
malfunctioning. I returned it to him so he could fix it, or, as he had agreed,
so he would give me my money back $780.00....... He never gave it back, and
the I decided to take him to Small Claims to retrieve my computer. At small
claims the judge dismissed the case without prejudice because he showed
paperwork for his recently opened bankruptcy case.

Two months into his bankruptcy case he listed me as a creditor, and as of now
he still has not given me the computer or the money back.

His bankruptcy case is now closed, and discharged. I want to know if you can
give me some advice on how to get my computer back. This guy practically stole
my computer (that I had bought from him to use while in college here at UCSB).
It all happened in late December, 2001.
