In re Knighton (06-10492)

The debtor, who had filed a prior bankruptcy case five years earlier as a Chapter 13, converted to Chapter 7, and received a discharge, was eligible for a discharge in her current Chapter 13 case. The lookback period for determining whether a debtor is eligible for a discharge begins on the date the previous case was filed, not the date it was converted.
