(Bankr. E.D. Ky. Mar. 18, 2015)
The bankruptcy court holds that KRS 427.170 merely allows Kentucky debtors to claim 11 U.S.C. § 522(d) exemptions in bankruptcy. It does not adopt the federal bankruptcy exemptions into the body of state exemption law. Thus, the court rejects the debtor’s argument that she should be permitted to claim the § 522(d) exemptions as well as an exemption in entireties property under state law. Opinion below.
