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.

A complete and utter delay tactic again on his part NOT to have to pay his debtors. My question is now what happens to all of the creditors who have not received payments for the last ten months, will they be able to be paid in full for this timeframe now that he has "changed his mind" about filing for bankruptcy??

I'm not sure what this means. Has he figured out a way to get all of his debts current without the help of the bankruptcy court? I'd expect that the bankruptcy court would deny the dismissal if the other other parties--his creditors--do not believe there's any plan in place for them to get some or all of what they're owed. Does he have some previously undisclosed assets that he's afraid to lose if the bankruptcy moves forward?

I guess it's time to go grab another bucket of popcorn, because this show could start getting dramatic again really soon.


And this is an example of who was elected as judge for our county.
