In re Howard

Debtor filed a chapter 13 petition. The debtor had filed two previous Chapter 7 bankruptcies, in both of which the debtor failed to pay the required fees, and the cases were dismissed. The debtor owed $335.00 to the court. The bankruptcy clerk asked the court to dismiss the case pursuant to 11 U.S.C. § 109(g)(1). The court ordered the debtor to show cause why the case should not be dismissed.
Ruling: 
Nonpayment of filing fees in prior bankruptcy cases was not grounds for dismissing the current case.
