In re Batten, 351 B.R. 256, 2006 Bankr. LEXIS 2524 (Bankr. S.D. Ga. September 29, 2006) (Dalis). 

Debtors filed a motion seeking authority to amend their schedules to reflect a tort claim that arose post-petition after the conversion from Chapter 13 to Chapter 7, and in the same month the debtors received a discharge. The motion was denied as unnecessary and improper, as there was no duty or obligation to disclose a post-petition and post-conversion asset that was not property of the estate.
