In Re Haley (2006)
Before the Court is the Chapter 13 Trustee's objection to the confirmation of the Debtors' above median plan. The Trustee argues that several of the Debtors' claimed expense deductions from disposable income should not be allowed and that the plan fails to satisfy section 1325(b) in that it does not devote all available disposable income to the plan.

In Re Chandler (1997)This Chapter 13 case presents the issue of whether the debtors may pay their unsecured student loan creditor the required monthly contractual amount on those loans "outside" of their Chapter 13 Plan, while paying their other unsecured creditors a monthly amount at a lesser percentage of those debts "within" their Chapter 13 Plan. For the reasons set out below, the Court holds that the student loan debts may be paid directly and separately during the 36-month course of the debtors' Chapter 13 [...]

Even more engrossing to said scholastic would be the truly metaphysical questions presented by that case law. The questions no longer revolve around how many angels "can dance on the head of a needle" but rather: [...]
