In Re Nolan L.k. Crabbe, Debtor, 133 F.3d 926 (9th Cir. 1997)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 133 F.3d 926 (9th Cir. 1997) Submitted Dec. 15, 1997**Decided Dec. 17, 1997

Before SNEED, LEAVY and TROTT, Circuit Judges


Nolan L.K. Crabbe appeals pro se the decision of the Bankruptcy Appellate Panel dismissing as moot his appeal from a bankruptcy court's order lifting the automatic stay in bankruptcy. "Bankruptcy's mootness rule applies when an appellant has failed to obtain a stay from an order that permits a sale of a debtor's assets." In re Onouli-Kona Land Co. (Onouli-Kona Land Co. v. Estate of Richards), 846 F.2d 1170, 1171 (9th Cir. 1988). Here, Crabbe failed to obtain a stay, and he has failed to show that any exceptions to the mootness rule apply to his case. Consequently, we dismiss the appeal as moot. See id.



The panel unanimously finds this case suitable for decision without oral argument. See Fed. R. App. P. 34(a); 9th Cir. R. 34-4
