In re Westenberger

Ruling: 
Debtor was granted reconsideration of dismissal due to deficient certification of exigent circumstances since debtor described sufficiently exigent circumstances in having counseling agency make debtor wait five days until debtor's check cleared.
Procedural posture: 
The debtor filed an emergency motion to reconsider an earlier order that dismissed the case. The debtor sought relief under chapter 7, and the court had dismissed the petition because the debtor had not obtained budget and credit counseling before filing his petition, as required by 11 U.S.C. § 109(h)(3)(A)(i).
