GALVESTON — A county court judge who filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy protection in February is seeking to have the case dismissed, according to federal court documents filed Thursday.
Christopher Dupuy was elected judge of Galveston County Court of Law No. 3 during a 2010 Republican landslide. He has come under scrutiny related to incidents both before and after he became judge.
In October, Dupuy listed $299,772 as the amount in which creditors hold unsecured, nonpriority claims, court documents state.
On Thursday, Thomas M. Root, Dupuy’s bankruptcy attorney, filed a motion to dismiss his client’s Chapter 13 case.
Chapter 13 is called the wage earner bankruptcy, which is available to individuals who promise to repay as many debtors as possible.
