    expected to obtain judgment against Forever Green which would render any amounts to be paid to the arbitrator subject to execution and garnishment Shortly thereafter the Dawsons transferred the consent judgment to Pennsylvania and obtained a writ of execution at which point the arbitration was suspended 804 F 3d at 331 In response Forever Green commenced a new action in Philadelphia Pennsylvania the Philadelphia Action claiming among other things that Mr Dawson had threatened to put Forever Green into bankruptcy if the arbitration was not terminated Mr Dawson nonetheless continued his attempts to collect upon the consent judgment and the judge in the Philadelphia Action set a briefing schedule No briefing took place however because Mr Dawson his wife and a law firm joined together and filed an involuntary bankruptcy petition against Forever Green under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code 804 F 3d at 331 32 Procedural History Even though the petitioners met the necessary statutory predicates to file an involuntary bankruptcy petition against Forever Green and that petition was valid on its face Forever Green moved to dismiss the involuntary petition alleging that Mr Dawson had acted in bad faith The Bankruptcy Court ultimately granted the motion to dismiss and concluded that even though the petitioning creditors met the statutory filing requirements Charles Dawson was a bad faith creditor because he was motivated by two improper purposes to frustrate Forever Green s efforts to litigate its claim against ProGreen and to collect on a debt 804 F 3d at 332 Once it found that Mr Dawson was acting in bad faith the Bankruptcy Court dismissed the involuntary case because there were only two good faith petitioning creditors that remained which was one short of the three required by Section 303 b 804 F 3d at 332 The District Court affirmed and the Dawsons appealed The United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit reviewed the Bankruptcy Court s factual findings for clear error and its legal determinations de novo 804 F 3d at 332 Court of Appeals Ruling and Reasoning Noting that it was not disputed that the Dawsons and the law firm as three distinct creditors with undisputed debts of more than 15 325 satisfied the statutory predicates to commence an involuntary bankruptcy see 11 U S C 303 b 1 quoted above and that Forever Green was generally not paying its debts as they became due see 11 U S C 303 h 1 quoted above the Court focused on whether bad faith may serve as a basis for dismissal even where the criteria for commencing and sustaining an involuntary bankruptcy case are satisfied 804 F 3d at 333 34 Rejecting certain precedent reaching the opposite conclusion see e g In re WLB RSK Venture 2004 WL 3119789 at 6 n 13 B A P 9th Cir Nov 24 2004 good or bad faith of the petitioning creditor appears irrelevant In re Knoth 168 B R 311 315 D S C 1994 motivation of the
