Comprehensive Revision of FRBPs Governing Appeals

Wednesday, December 3, 2014

The rules governing bankruptcy appeals, Rules 8001-8028, have been revised to bring the rules into closer alignment with the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure; to incorporate a presumption favoring the electronic transmission, filing, and service of court documents; and to adopt a clearer style. The existing rules were reorganized and renumbered, some rules were combined, and provisions of other rules were moved to new locations. Much of the language was restyled. Rules 8001-8028, effective December 1, 2014, can be viewed by clicking here.
