Pre 2005-Act
Ruling: 
Debtors could avoid judicial lien impairing exemption claimed only after case was reopened.
Procedural posture: 
After debtors reopened their chapter 7 to assert a claim to exemptions relative to real estate that had been scheduled in the original proceeding and thereafter moved to avoid a judicial lien asserted by a judgment creditor, the creditor filed an objection to the exemption claim. At issue was whether debtors were properly permitted to avoid the lien pursuant to 11 U.S.C. § 522(f).
