In re Meany

Ruling: 
Debtor allowed to reopen case to obtain discharge as failure to timely obtain financial management counseling was due to excusable neglect.
Procedural posture: 
Debtor filed a pro se voluntary petition for relief under chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code in July 2007. The case was converted to one under chapter 7, but it was closed without entry of a discharge order because the debtor had not completed a course in personal financial management within the time prescribed by Fed. R. Bankr. P. 1007. The debtor filed a motion to reopen his case, and a creditor filed an objection to that motion.
