Pre 2005-Act
Ruling: 
Postpetition postconfirmation wrongful death claim was not estate property and did not require amendment to schedules.
Procedural posture: 
The chapter 13 debtor moved to amend the schedules in her case to reflect her interest in a wrongful death claim as to her deceased husband that arose post-confirmation. The objecting parties were defendants in the wrongful death suit. The debtor contended the claim was not property of her estate under 11 U.S.C. §§ 1306(a) and 1327(b), but moved to amend her schedules and identify the asset only in case disclosure was necessary.
