NOTICE OF APPEAL
NOTICE IS GIVEN that Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. ("Wells Fargo"), a non-party
creditor holding security interests in properties subject to this receivership, for itself and as
loan servicer for Bank of America, N.A., who also holds security interests in property subject
to this receivership, appeals to the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit
from the Order of this Court Granting the Receiver's Motion (I) for Determination that Wells
Fargo Bank, N.A.'s Failure to Comply with this Court's Claims Administration Process
Extinguished its Purported Interests in Receivership Properties, and (II) for Release of
Proceeds of Sale of Sarasota Property ("Order"). [Doc. 1222] Wells Fargo appeals in its
capacities as both holder of its own security interests and as servicer for Bank of America,
The Order is appealable pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1291 and the doctrine of practical
finality because it finally determines the right to immediate possession of property and will
cause irreparable harm to non-party Wells Fargo if the Order cannot be appealed until after a
final order terminating this receivership. See In re F.D.R. Hickory House, Inc., 60 F.3d 724,
726-27 (11th Cir. 1995) (doctrine of practical finality allows immediate appeals of orders
which decide the right to the property in contest or direct immediate payment); Ortho Pharm.
Corp. v. Sona Distrib., 847 F.2d 1512, 1516-17 (11th Cir. 1988) (finding doctrine of practical
finality allows immediate appeal by non-party of order requiring payment of monetary
sanctions). The Order is attached hereto as Exhibit A.
