Floyd Phillip Gibbons, Ii, Appellee, 141 F.3d 1168 (8th Cir. 1998)Annotate this Case
Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas.
Before BOWMAN and MORRIS SHEPPARD ARNOLD, Circuit Judges, and NANGLE, District Judge.1
The Bankruptcy Court2 dismissed the objection of First Canterbury Securities, Inc. to the dischargeability of its claim in the Chapter 7 proceedings of Floyd Phillip Gibbons, II. The Bankruptcy Court ruled the objection untimely because First Canterbury filed it after the Bankruptcy Rule 4007(c) deadline without first obtaining an extension. The District Court3 affirmed the decision of the Bankruptcy Court. First Canterbury appeals.
Having considered the record and the parties' briefs and oral arguments on appeal, we find no reason for reversal. Because the case involves a routine application of bankruptcy rules that are plain in their meaning and an opinion would lack precedential value, we sustain the order of the District Court without further comment.
AFFIRMED. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.
The Honorable John F. Nangle, United States District Judge for the Eastern District of Missouri, sitting by designation
The Honorable Mary D. Scott, United States Bankruptcy Judge for the Eastern District of Arkansas
