This opinion holds that while a decedent's estate is not eligible to file a Chapter 13 banktuptcy petition because it is not within the definition of an "individual" as set forth in 11 U.S.C. § 109 for purposes of Chapter 13, a debtor who is serving as a personal representative of a decedent's estate is not thereby barred from filing a Chapter 13 petition in his individual capacity, if otherwise eligible.
