In re Reilly

Appellant chapter 7 trustee moved to sell the debtor's business equipment that she had listed as personal property on her Schedule B and listed as exempt from bankruptcy on her Schedule C. The bankruptcy court denied the motion because the trustee had not filed a timely objection to the debtor's claim of exemption. The United States District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania affirmed. The trustee appealed.
Ruling: 
Trustee could not sell debtor's personal property due to failure to timely object to debtor's claimed exemptions.
