Olsen v. Heaver (In re Heaver)

Ruling: 
Mortgage recorded outside of chain of title could be avoided.
Procedural posture: 
The chapter 7 trustee sought to avoid a mortgage granted by the debtor to mortgagee bank, where the mortgage was recorded 7 days before the deed that conveyed the interest in land to the debtor was recorded. The mortgagee bank argued that the doctrine of after acquired title should render the mortgage validly recorded.
