21-599 10th Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2022

Issue: Whether a bankruptcy court may deny a motion to dismiss and/or grant a completion discharge when there remains, at the end of that plan term, a shortfall that the debtor is willing and able to cure within a reasonable time, or whether such a payment made after the five-year period of a Chapter 13 plan is not a payment “under the plan” but an impermissible modification after the plan ended.
