Alaska has not opted out of the federal exemptions. Alaska
Stat. § 09.38.55 sometimes results in confusion on this point
(“In a proceeding under [Title 11] only the exemptions in
[specified Alaska provisions] apply.”). However, that language
is not an opt-out. Both the following Alaska cases applied
federal exemptions.
In re Buscano, 2006 WL 3247118 (Bankr.
D.Alaska 2006); In re McNutt, 87 B.R. 84 (B.A.P. 9th Cir. 1988).
