Roy v. Canadian Pacific Railway Company

Pending petition
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
21-1047 1st Cir. TBD TBD TBD TBD TBD

Issues: (1) Whether the term “cases under title 11” — for which the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure govern procedure — extends to cases in district court that are merely “related to a case under title 11,” such that the bankruptcy rules govern in all civil cases that could conceivably affect a bankruptcy; and (2) whether, assuming the bankruptcy rules apply in district court, the rules require a motion to reconsider a district court’s judgment under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 59(e) to be filed within 14 days, as a similar motion under Federal Rule of Bankruptcy Procedure 9023 must be filed in the bankruptcy court within 14 days.
