bankruptcy courts are special courts. They are neither Article III courts (Northern Pipeline Constr. Co. v. Marathon Pipe Line Co., 458 U.S. 50 (1982)) nor their adjuncts (Stern v. Marshall, 564 U.S. 462 (2011)), but nonetheless have inherent powers (Law v. Siegel, 134 S. Ct. 1188, 1194, 571 U.S. __ (2014)) and—pursuant to 11 U.S.C. § 105—certain equitable powers. This means that they have broad powers to order equitable remedies—such as specific performance—where no adequate remedy at law exists, to the extent not inconsistent with any other provisions of the Bankruptcy Code. See Law v. Siegel, 134 S. Ct. at 1194, 571 U.S. at __.

[i]ncome from discharge of indebtedness" I.R.C. § 61(a)(12).

many debtors—and a few attorneys—are unaware that the Bankruptcy Code provides a way for debtors in a chapter 7 case to "redeem tangible personal property intended primarily for personal, family, or household use, from a lien securing a dischargeable consumer debt, if such property is exempted [by the debtor] . . . or has been abandoned . . . [by the trustee], by paying the holder of such lien the amount of the allowed secured claim of such holder that is secured by such lien in full at the time of redemption." 11 U.S.C. § 722. There is quite a bit to unpack here, but at bottom, almost any non-commercial physical personal property subject to a security interest can be exempted and redeemed in a chapter 7 case.
