In re Ring

Ruling: 
Court deemed that debtors'failure to provide tax returns to trustees was not grounds for dismissal but declined to issue bright line rule on tax return filings since the requests were not cases or controversies but rather anticipatory motions.
Procedural posture: 
In two cases filed after enactment of the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005 ("BAPCPA"), consumer debtors sought orders determining that they had not violated the Bankruptcy Code's requirements for providing the chapter 7 and chapter 13 trustees with copies of prebankruptcy tax returns, as required by 11 U.S.C. § 521(e)(2)(A)(i), even though copies of the returns were provided to the trustees in either case.
