Bank of New York Mellon v. Watt

A district court order vacating a bankruptcy court order confirming a bankruptcy plan and remanding for further proceedings is not a final order from which an appeal as of right may be taken to the Court of Appeals.  Following Bullard v. Blue Hill Bank (2015) 135 S.Ct. 1686, this decision holds that when a district court vacates a bankruptcy court order confirming a bankruptcy plan and remands for further proceedings, there is no final order sufficient to confer jurisdiction under 28 U.S.C. § 158(d).  The parties may seek leave to appeal under 28 USC 158(d) or 1292(b) from such an order if it raises an important question of law.
