In re Paschal

Movant, a chapter 13 debtor, sought a declaratory judgment and, in the alternative, sought a continuance of the automatic stay, requesting the court to determine the meaning of 11 U.S.C. § 362(c)(3)(A), as enacted pursuant to the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005, Pub.L. No. 109-8, § 302.
Ruling: 
Court interpreted section 362(c)(3)(A) of the Code to not have terminated all of the debtor's automatic stay protections simply because the debtor had a prior case dismissed within the preceding year but rather to have terminated only if actions were taken by creditors within the prior year.

In re Moore

A bankruptcy debtor's prior bankruptcy case was dismissed and the debtor filed a second case within a year after the prior case was closed. The debtor moved to extend the automatic bankruptcy stay in the second case, which would otherwise expire 30 days after the second case was filed pursuant to 11 U.S.C. § 362(c)(3).
Ruling: 
Automatic stay was extended for second filing made within a year of a prior case being closed since the prior case had actually been dismissed just not closed more than a year before the second filing.
