Colbert, et al. v. Brennan, et al., No. 13-30069 (5th Cir. 2014)Annotate this Case
This suit arose when Kenyon filed a revocatory and oblique action against defendants to collect on the judgment against Brennan's Inc. The court concluded that it lacked jurisdiction to hear this appeal where the voluntary dismissal of Ted Brennan's appeal voided his notice of appeal. He failed to file a new notice of appeal within the time limits required by Rule 4(a) or seek relief in the district court as provided by Rule 4(a). The reinstatement of his appeal by a single judge of this court was not decisive of this specific jurisdictional issue.
