BUSINESS BANKRUPTCY ATTORNEY ONLY: Can debts in an LLC

BUSINESS BANKRUPTCY ATTORNEY ONLY: Can debts in an LLC partnership filing taxes as a Sub-S be discharged in a Chapter 7? If one of the two equal partners withdraws a large sum of money to pay his own separately owned company without authorization of the other partner and this potentially renders the LLC insolvent and unable to pay its payroll taxes and other third-party obligations, forcing the other partner to put the LLC into Ch 7, could the Trustee discharge that debt AND seek to recover it due to the partner who made the withdrawal preferring his own separate company over other creditors and is this likely? Lastly, can IRS force an Involuntary Ch 7 for unpaid payroll taxes?

My brother and his wife declared chapter 13 bankruptcy in

My brother and his wife declared chapter 13 bankruptcy in April. They have a total of approx. 436K in secured claims against them and 197K in unsecured claims. The secured claims are their mortgage, IRS and NJ state taxes along with an auto loan. The unsecured claims are mostly credit card debt and a 70K business loan that I signed as a co-guarantor just before leaving the business to my my brother in May 2002. Between 2009 - 2015, he had used the entire business loan and had to close his business. During that time he leased automobiles and took trips that were not business related. After declaring bankruptcy, my brother and his wife decided to put their house up for sale thinking their house could more than cover the total of all claims. It's been on the market for 5 months and the asking price is less than the amount he owes in total. My question, at this time; since I was defrauded and left with the responsibility to pay back the business loan (I've paid monthly up to 15K to date since he filed), can the loan be changed to a secured claim so that it's guaranteed to be paid in full when he sells his house? He should get enough to cover just the secured loans.
