The issue in this case is whether a claim for sexual harassment may be exempted from the Chapter 7 debtor's bankruptcy estate under Maryland's personal injury exemption statute, Md. Cts. and Jud. Proc. Code Ann. § 11-504(b)(2). The Chapter 7 trustee objected on that basis to the debtor's claimed exemption of $29,575 paid to her in settlement of a claim for sexual harassment brought against the debtor's former employer.
