Order Setting Priority of Liens

Judge Daniel P. Collins
01/14/14 Joseph Otto Letizia and Zhanhong Chen (3:13-bk-09233-RJH) 01/14/14

Holding: The issue presented is whether the Debtors may exempt two vehicles, concededly utilized primarily for business purposes in a sole proprietorship, using Arizona’s personal item exemptions provided in A.R.S. § 33-1125(8). The Court holds that debtors in Arizona, doing business as sole proprietors, may not exempt vehicles used primarily for business using Arizona personal item exemptions, and instead must use Arizona’s tools of the trade exemptions.
