In re Gaddy

Ruling: 
Debtor could not avoid lien that did not impair any homestead exemption in property.
Procedural posture: 
Debtor filed a petition under chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code and claimed a homestead exemption in a house she owned. A bank that obtained judgments in state court against the debtor and two trusts she managed filed an objection to the debtor's claim and moved for relief from the automatic stay and an order requiring the chapter 7 trustee to abandon the property. The debtor filed a motion to avoid the bank's lien.
