Morris v. Quigley, No. 09-2102 (4th Cir. 2012)Annotate this Case
The bankruptcy trustee in the Chapter 13 bankruptcy estate of the debtor appealed a district court order affirming a bankruptcy court ruling that in calculating projected disposable income, the debtor could deduct the monthly payments that she would not in fact be required to make. The court concluded that the bankruptcy court erred in ruling that the determination of the debtor's projected disposable income could not take into account the debtor's intention to surrender her ATV vehicles. Accordingly, the judgment was reversed and remanded.
