Ransom v. MBNA America Bank (In re Ransom)

Certification to 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on issue of whether debtor could not claim disposable income deduction for expenses on vehicles owned free and clear.
Procedural posture: 
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Nevada denied confirmation of a chapter 13 plan filed by appellant debtor. The denial was based upon the fact that debtor sought to take deductions for vehicle ownership expenses as part of the calculation of his projected disposable income, when in fact he had no such expenses. A motions panel of the Bankruptcy Appellate Panel granted leave for debtor's appeal under 28 U.S.C. § 158(a)(3), (b).
