In re Tufano

Ruling: 
Conversion to chapter 13 granted over trustee's objection where debtors' misstatements and omissions were due to erroneous advice of former counsel.
Procedural posture: 
Bankruptcy debtors moved to convert their Chapter 7 bankruptcy case to a case under Chapter 13 pursuant to 11 U.S.C.S. § 706(a), and the bankruptcy trustee objected to conversion on the grounds that the debtors were untruthful and could not propose a confirmable Chapter 13 plan.
