In Law v. Siegel (2014) 571 U.S. 415, the US Supreme Court held that a bankruptcy court may not use its equitable powers under 11 USC 105 to contravene express provisions of the Bankruptcy Code.  Applying that reasoning, this decision departs from prior Ninth Circuit precedent, In re Rosson (9th Cir. 2008) 545 F.3d 764, and holds that a bankruptcy court may not deny a Chapter 13 debtor the absolute right to dismiss the bankruptcy case under 11 U.S.C. 1307(b)–despite the debtor’s inequitable conduct.  Section 1307(b) grants the debtor the right to dismiss at any time.  There is no implied exception for a debtor who has engaged in bad faith conduct or abused the bankruptcy process.
