In granting the Debtors’ proposed modification of their confirmed Chapter 13 plan, the court finds that nothing in § 1325(b)(4) of the Bankruptcy Code or Pliler v. Stearns (In re Pliler), 747 F.3d 260 (4th Cir. 2014) requires Chapter 13 debtors to pay more than the confirmed base of their plan absent additional disposable income or nonexempt assets justifying modification.

Honorable Patrick M. Flatley
In granting the Debtor’s motion to value an automobile under § 506(a) of the Bankruptcy Code, the court finds that valuation is not precluded by the “hanging paragraph” of § 1325(a) because the Debtor did not acquire the vehicle for his personal use.
In approving the Debtor's stipulation with Dollar Tree resolving its objection to Dollar Tree's proof of claim, the court finds that Dollar Tree’s voting rights need not be identical to its distribution rights under a Chapter 11 plan, and that the stipulation does not constitute an impermissible solicitation under § 1125(b).
