Bankruptcy dismissal for failing to file court papers

When a debtor files for bankruptcy relief, if they fail to file all required schedules, statements and documents, they have 14 days to file the documents. In the event the forms are not filed, the case can be dismissed. This is what happened in the Halsey Minor case. His attorney is asking that the dismissal be reversed because the attorney made the decision not to file the documents on the deadline as they were missing some information. The attorney is arguing that the debtor should not be punished for his attorney’s decision.
