In re Tinsley

Ruling: 
Debtor could claim exemption in homestead consisting of ranch and residence inherited from father but not yet titled in debtor's name.
Procedural posture: 
A bankruptcy debtor described himself as a rancher and claimed an exemption in his homestead consisting of ranch land and a residence which the debtor inherited from his father, but the property remained titled in the father's name pending probate administration. The bankruptcy trustee and the debtor's primary creditor objected to the debtor's claimed homestead exemption.
