KK-PB Financial, LLC v. 160 Royal Palm, LLC

Pending petition
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
21-1197 11th Cir. TBD TBD TBD TBD TBD

Issues: (1) Whether the dismissal of an appeal of a bankruptcy court confirmation order based on “equitable mootness” renders an appeal from the same case “constitutionally moot,” even though a possibility of relief for the appellant still exists; and (2) whether the judge-made doctrine of “equitable mootness” in the context of bankruptcy appeals – which has been used to dismiss appeals despite the presence of federal jurisdiction and the existence of live disputes – should be rejected or at least subject to a requirement to conduct a preliminary review of the merits of the appeal.
