In re Withers

Ruling: 
Failure to obtain credit counseling did not require immediate dismissal.
Procedural posture: 
A chapter 7 bankruptcy debtor failed to obtain credit counseling as required under 11 U.S.C. § 109(h) to be eligible as a debtor in bankruptcy and failed to file documents required by 11 U.S.C. § 521(a)(1)(B). The bankruptcy court denied the trustee's motion for an order to show cause why the debtor should not be held in contempt for disobeying a court order, pending consideration of whether dismissal of the case was warranted or required.
