In re Cunningham

Ruling: 
Mechanic's lien was statutory and could not be avoided as impairing debtors' homestead exemption.
Procedural posture: 
Debtors filed a petition under chapter 13 of the Bankruptcy Code and sought a determination that they were allowed under 11 U.S.C.S. § 522(f)(1)(A) to avoid a mechanic's lien which a creditor placed on their residence. The creditor opposed the debtor's motion, and the court held a hearing on the debtors' motion and the creditor's objection.
