Medical Liens v. Bankruptcy
I have case with over $200,000 in medicals with liens and only $25,000 liability money available. If client files bankruptcy and gets $50,000 exemption, discharges the medical debt are the medical liens discharged along with the debt?
Answer: I'm not a bankruptcy attorney but I think the answer is found in St. John Medical Center, Inc. v. Innis, 181 Bkrcy.Rptr. 548 (N.D.Okla. 1995): Med. lien survives bankruptcy, even as to amount w/in $50,000 exemption.
