In re Rupp

Judgment lien creditor's objection to debtor's state homestead exemption overruled.
Procedural posture: 
Debtor declared bankruptcy and claimed a homestead exemption under N.Y. C.P.L.R. art. 5206(a) in the entire value of a home she owned, even though she rented half the home and lived in the other half. A judgment creditor filed an objection to the debtor's claim, in an attempt to preempt a motion under 11 U.S.C.S. § 522(f) that would have avoided his judgment lien on the entire parcel.
