CHICAGO - A panel of the Seventh Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals on March 29 ruled that a debtor couple could not avoid a lien on their condominium and held that the bankruptcy and district courts had not abused their discretion (Bryan D. Hinnen, et al. v. Emerald Hills Condominium Association, No. 12-2922, Chapter 13, 7th Cir.; 2013 U.S. App. LEXIS 6304).
