Notice of Appeal to the BAP

Notice of Appeal

Generally, a notice of appeal must be filed with the clerk of the bankruptcy court within 14 days after entry of the bankruptcy court’s order or judgment.  See Fed. R. Bankr. P. 8002.  If a notice of appeal is late filed, the Court will issue an order to show cause why the appeal should not be dismissed, and unless the time for filing the notice of appeal is extended by the bankruptcy court, the Court will dismiss the appeal.

The notice of appeal must conform to Official Form 17A and identify the parties to the appeal, the contact information for their attorneys, the order or judgment appealed from, and a statement of election.  See Fed. R. Bankr. P. 8003(a)(3).

Separate notices of appeal, together with the prescribed fees, are required for each order being appealed.  Parties may not seek review of multiple orders using a single notice of appeal.  See 10th Cir. BAP L.R. 8003-1.
