Liebzeit v. Intercity State Bank FSB (In re Blanchard)

Ruling: 
Mortgage on vendor's interest in land contract was valid under state law and had priority over trustee's avoidance powers.
Issue: 
Whether a bankruptcy trustee could use his strong arm powers under 11 U.S.C.S. § 544(a)(3) to avoid a bank's mortgage on the debtors' property, which was subject to a land contract, so he could use their vendor's interest in the land contract for the benefit of unsecured creditors.
