Wells Fargo Fin. Leasing, Inc. v. D&M Cabinets, C058486

In an appeal from a trial court order appointing a receiver to sell third-party claimant's owner-occupied dwelling to foreclose a judgment lien, the order is reversed where the order expressly allowed the judgment creditor to bypass the statutory procedure for foreclosing a judgment lien on a dwelling occupied as the principal residence of a debtor or his spouse, and therefore subject to an automatic homestead exemption.
