Per FRBP 9024, a motion to "reopen" a dismissed bankruptcy case is actually a motion to "set aside," and must follow FRCP 60
. You will need a clear justification for why you should be permitted to return to the previously dismissed case. The trustee
may object, claiming that you have acted in bad faith by filing two Chapter 13 cases already.
I don't really have any ideas of what you could claim as a rationale to set aside the dismissal order. But, that's the process that must be followed.
