06/02/14 Warfield v. Santander Consumer (2:14-ap-00173-DPC) 06/02/14

Holding: Defendant’s date of perfection of a lien relates back to December 14, 2013. Therefore, Plaintiff/Trustee’s rights and powers under 11 U.S.C. § 544(a), which arose on the Petition Date of December 18, 2013, are inferior to Defendant’s lien rights. See § 546(b) and A.R.S. § 47-9322(A)(1). Defendant’s motion to dismiss is granted.

05/30/14 Cline (2:13-bk-19488-DPC) 05/30/14

Holding: Missouri’s exemptions are not restricted to residents of Missouri so long as Debtors are domiciled in Missouri for purposes of Section 522(b)(3)(A). Because Missouri has opted-out of the federal exemption scheme, Debtors must use the exemptions provided under Missouri law.
