Darren Mexic successfully defends Personal Injury money in Bankruptcy

Darren Mexic successfully defends Personal Injury money in Bankruptcy.  The bankruptcy court overrules the Chapter 7 trustee's objection to the debtor's claimed exemption.  The debtor moved to reopen her case, add a personal injury cause of action to her schedules, and claim an exemption in a portion of the recovery on the cause of action.  The court holds that Law v. Siegel is applicable, and the court does not have authority to deny the exemption even if bad faith exists.  Opinion below.

Judge: Lloyd

Attorney for Debtor:  Darren K. Mexic

Trustee:  Jerry Burns
