In re: Kalid Jama

19 B 35595
Debtor asked the court to reopen his bankruptcy case for the purpose of pursuing an action under 11 U.S.C. § 362(k).  Held: Motion denied for three reasons.  First, Debtor is a debtor in another bankruptcy case and cannot have two open cases.  Second, Debtor was never eligible to be a debtor in his closed bankruptcy case because he did not complete the credit counseling requirement.  Finally, the court already denied relief under § 362(k), finding that the while the creditor had violated the stay, it did not do so willfully.  Therefore, there would be no purpose to reopening the case.
