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

MEMORANDUM* 

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.

DISMISSED.

 **

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