In re Wapshare

A chapter 13 debtor asserted that a creditor with a second mortgage lien against the debtor's residence was unsecured based on the value of the residence, which provided no equity to which the creditor's lien could attach. The debtor moved to avoid the creditor's lien and to reclassify the creditor's claim as unsecured.
Ruling: 
Wholly unsecured second lien was avoidable but creditor retained right to object to plan confirmation.
