In re Challis

(Bankr. S.D. Ind. Jan. 31, 2018)

The bankruptcy court grants the U.S. Trustee’s motion to dismiss pursuant to 11 U.S.C. §§ 707(b)(1) and (2). The bankruptcy court concludes that the presumption of abuse arises based on the Debtors’ schedules and the submitted means test form. The debtors failed to rebut the presumption, despite their arguments that deductions to their monthly income should be made due to special circumstances. Opinion below.

Judge: Carr

Attorney for Debtors: Steven P. Taylor
