In re Williams

Ruling: 
Case dismissed as filed in bad faith where debtor purchased house on petition date.
Procedural posture: 
Movant, the trustee, asked the court to dismiss debtor's chapter 7 case on claims that it constituted an abuse of chapter 7 and was properly dismissed under either the so-called "means test" per 11 U.S.C.S. § 707(b)(2) or under the "totality of the circumstances" test in § 707(b)(3). Movant also argued that the case was filed in bad faith.
