Hamilton v. Lanning

Ruling: 
Projected disposable income calculation should be presumed correct, but may be rebutted by evidence of a substantial change in circumstances.
Procedural posture: 
A bankruptcy court confirmed a chapter 13 plan, considering respondent debtor's actual income for "projected disposable income" (PDI) under 11 U.S.C.S. § 1325(b)(1)(B). An appellate panel and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit affirmed, holding that evidence of a substantial change in the debtor's circumstances could be used under a forward looking approach. Certiorari was granted on petitioner trustee's petition.
