However, in a little-noticed decision ..., 28 Aug 2012 [cached]
However, in a little-noticed decision from July, 2012, Judge William Altenberger limited the Illinois homestead exemption and may have eliminated the right to obtain a judgment lien avoidance too. In the Kimberly Clemons case, the court considered the situation where a debtor had no equity in a home but asserted an exemption anyway. That is, the debtor's home was worth less than the mortgage she had given on it, so there was no equity. She also claimed a homestead exemption in the property, while there was a large judgment (related to a mechanic's lien claim) on it.
The court concluded that the debtor could not assert an exemption in her home because the Illinois exemption is limited to her "interest" therein which itself was limited to only equity in it. So if you have no equity, you have no exemption. Judge Altenberger based this position on a 1989 decision by Judge Meyers (In re Jennings, 107 B.R. 165) which reached the same conclusion about the motor vehicle exemption.
