In re Doetsch

Pre 2005-Act: 
Pre 2005-Act
Ruling: 
Debtor's failure to disclose postconversion inheritance was not indicative of bad faith conversion.
Procedural posture: 
After a bankruptcy debtor's chapter 13 plan was confirmed and the debtor made plan payments for almost two years, the debtor received an inheritance and subsequently converted the case to chapter 13. The U.S. Trustee moved for a determination that the inheritance was property of the debtor's chapter 7 estate under 11 U.S.C. § 348(f)(2) because the debtor converted the case in bad faith.
