By The Honorable William Houston Brown (Retired)
Chapter 7 trustee’s abandonment did not deprive court of jurisdiction to hear § 522(f) lien avoidance. The bankruptcy court retained authority under § 522(f) to hear the Chapter 7 debtor’s motion to avoid judicial lien, notwithstanding the trustee’s prior abandonment of the cause of action. Under 28 U.S.C.A. § 1334(e)(1), the court had jurisdiction over property of the estate and of the debtor. Ramos v. Negron (In re Ramos), 498 B.R. 401 (BAP 1st Cir. 2013).
