In re Davis

The chapter 13 trustee filed an objection to confirmation of the debtor's plan, asserting that the treatment of the claims of three secured judgment creditors under the proposed plan did not comply with the requirements imposed by 11 U.S.C.S. § 1325(a)(5)(B). The debtor argued that, because none of those creditors had objected to the proposed plan, 11 U.S.C.S. § 1325(a)(5)(A) was satisfied and § 1325(a)(5)(B) need not be considered.
Ruling: 
Plan could be confirmed despite noncompliant treatment of three claims where creditors did not object.

In re Johnson

Before the court, on remand from the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland, was a creditor's motion to reconsider seeking a ruling per Marrama that debtor's prepetition conduct amounted to cause for reconversion or dismissal under 11 U.S.C.S. § 1307(c) and therefore the conversion of the case to chapter 13 amounted to an abuse of process.
Ruling: 
Confirmation vacated due to debtor's willful destruction of property and insurance fraud.
