Wortley v. Chrispus Venture Capital, LLC, No. 13-11666 (11th Cir. 2014)Annotate this Case
Joseph G. Wortley, interested party, appealed the district court's affirmance of the bankruptcy court's summary denial of his motion for relief from judgment under Rule 60(b). Wortley and two others shared ownership in Global Energies before its bankruptcy. The court concluded that the bankruptcy court abused its discretion by clearly erring in its application of Rule 60(b)(2) under the facts of this case. The court remanded with instructions to grant Wortley's Rule 60(b)(2) motion and vacated its order approving the sale of Global assets to Chrispus.
