before the debtor was adjudged bankrupt or a petition for debtor relief was filed
under federal bankruptcy law, and:
(1) the debt or obligation evidenced by the judgment is not discharged in bankruptcy;
(2) the property is nonexempt and is abandoned during the course of the proceeding.
(b) Except as provided by Subsection (a), the judgment is of no force or validity
and may not be a lien on real property acquired by the bankrupt or debtor after the
discharge in bankruptcy.
