Submitted February 9, 1998. **Decided Feb. 19, 1998
Appeal from the Ninth Circuit Bankruptcy Appellate Panel Russell, Volinn, and Ashland, Judges, Presiding.
Before PREGERSON, CANBY, and LEAVY, Circuit Judges.
Stewart Iniguez, Sherrill Iniguez, George Brown, Denise Brown, Nelson Julian, and Alison Julian (collectively "appellants") appeal the Bankruptcy Appellate Panel's ("BAP") affirmance of the bankruptcy court's summary judgment in favor of Chapter 7 trustee Raymond A. Carey in Carey's action seeking to set aside debtors Alfred and Doreen Dalecio's post-petition transfer to the appellants of newly-issued stock in Aldorina, Inc. We have jurisdiction pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 158(d). This court independently reviews the bankruptcy court's rulings on appeal from the BAP. See Havelock v. Taxel (In re Pace), 67 F.3d 187, 191 (9th Cir. 1995). We review the bankruptcy court's conclusions of law de novo and the court's findings of fact for clear error. See Alsberg v. Robertson (In re Alsberg), 68 F.3d 312, 314 (9th Cir. 1995), and we affirm for the reasons stated in the BAP's decision filed on November 6, 1996.
