Motion to convert chapter 7 case to a chapter 11 case was denied as cause existed to immediately reconvert or dismiss the case if conversion was granted. (Bankr. M.D. Ga.)HOLDINGSL [1]-A debtor's motion to convert his Chapter 7 case to a Chapter 11 case under 11 U.S.C.S. § 706(a) was denied under the totality of the circumstances as the debtor had not filed tax returns, which would constitute cause for dismissal under 11 U.S.C.S. § 1112(b)(4)(I); [2]-The debtor could not insure the estate against diminution, which would constitute cause under § 1112(b)(4)(C); [3]-Cause existed under § 1112(b)(4)(A) as allowing the debtor to propose a liquidating Chapter 11 plan for a single asset estate would subject the estate to continuing diminution without a reasonable likelihood of rehabilitating his finances; [4]-He had no reliable source of income to offset Chapter 11 expenses; [5]-He inappropriately attempted to dissuade the trustee from representing the estate's interests; [6]-If the case were converted, cause existed to immediately reconvert or dismiss the case.Woodruff, In re, 2018 Bankr.
