Pay Advice case 4: Gilbert

In re Gilbert 08-12922 (Decision April 10, 2009; Judge Bucki, Buffalo) Another pay advice case. Here the debtor did not file with the court pay advices within 45 days of the petition date but did provide them to the trustee at the 341 hearing. The trustee apparently reviewed and returned the pay stubs without comment, and then filed a dismissal motion when the 45 day deadline passed. Judge Bucki ruled that the motion was legally sound but the trustee, having accepted the stubs without comment, was equitably estopped from moving to have the case deemed dismissed. Not mentioned in the case: Could the UST or another party have made the motion? Could they still?
