Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 73 F.3d 359 (4th Cir. 1995)

Submitted Dec. 14, 1995. Decided Dec. 26, 1995

Fran P. Clarkson, Appellant Pro Se. David I. Pincus, Gary Dexter Gray, Gary R. Allen, William Sears Estabrook, III, Alice Lizbeth Ronk, UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, Washington, D.C., for Appellee.

Before ERVIN, Chief Judge, and WIDENER and WILKINS, Circuit Judges.


Appellant appeals from the district court's order orders authorizing the foreclosure sale of her house and denying her motion for a new trial. Because the foreclosure sale has occurred pursuant to an order of the Bankruptcy Court and the property is not recoverable, see 11 U.S.C.A. Sec. 363(m) (West 1993), we dismiss the appeal as moot. See In re March, 988 F.2d 498, 499 (4th Cir.), cert. denied, --- U.S. ----, 62 U.S.L.W. 3248 (U.S. Oct. 4, 1993) (No. 93-91); Willemain v. Kivitz, 764 F.2d 1019, 1021 (4th Cir. 1985). We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before the court and argument would not aid the decisional process.
