Program Title: Hold That Appeal: Paring Back the Doctrine of Equitable Mootness

Speaker(s): Henk Taylor, Esq.



Program Description: In In re Transwest Resort Properties, Inc., 801 F.3d 1161 (9th Cir.  2015), the Ninth Circuit continued a trend of recent appellate court decisions narrowing the doctrine of equitable mootness as it applies to appeals of plan confirmation orders in Chapter 11 cases.  Learn why courts are second-guessing this judge-made doctrine and taking a harder look at motions to dismiss appeals for mootness.  Discussion will include a review of the more nuanced approach courts are taking in applying the doctrine, including examples of plan objections that are likely to be heard on the merits as well as those that will continue to be dismissed on mootness grounds.
