BANKRUPTCY LAW (9th Circuit Bankruptcy Appellate Panel; Homestead Exemption): Where debtors did not live in the property continuously from the time the judgment liens attached until the date of the filing of the bankruptcy petition, and where the facts showed that debtors had leased the property and were apparently living in another location on a permanent basis, homestead exemption was properly denied. Creditors could file claims and go through the bankruptcy process to attempt to collect appropriate portions of the debt. In re Jaswinder Singh Bhangoo, [published opinion] 9th Circuit Bankruptcy Appellate Panel, No. BAP No. EC-21-1158-BSL, filed December 22, 2021.
