Bankruptcy: Judicial Lien-Avoidance Action

Where a creditor challenged the granting of a debtor’s motion to avoid a judicial lien, the bankruptcy court properly found that the value of the real estate was fixed on the date that the petition was filed, and that the pre-restoration value of the property was the appropriate value to use in determining whether to avoid the judicial lien on the property, so the judgment is affirmed.

Judgment is affirmed.
