McDow v. Dudley, No. 10-1732 United States Fourth Circuit, 11/30/2011
In an appeal from a judgment of the district court dismissing an appeal to an order denying a motion to dismiss a debtor’s Chapter 7 bankruptcy case as abusive under 11 U.S.C. section 707(b) as interlocutory, judgment is reversed because a bankruptcy court’s order denying such a motion is immediately appealable to the district court.US v. Mitchell, No. 07-3136 (U.S. 8th Circuit Court of Appeals, June 10, 2008)
Conviction upon defendant’s retrial for knowingly and fraudulently making a false statement under penalty of perjury in a bankruptcy case is affirmed where the circuit court declines to revisit a double jeopardy issue, and there was sufficient evidence to sustain his conviction.
IN RE: SILBERKRAUS, No. 01-56992 (9th Cir. July 10, 2003) The bankruptcy court did not abuse its discretion in finding a Chapter 11 filing to be frivolous, and imposing sanctions upon counsel for acting in bad faith in delaying state court litigation of a commercial dispute.
