SEYBERT, District Judge:
This action is an appeal of an order entered in the
Chapter 13 bankruptcy proceeding of debtors Robert Katlowitz and
Neena Slavin Katlowitz (“Debtors”).
Appellant Interlink d/b/a
Salut USA (“Appellant”) appeals the May 1, 2013 Order of the United
States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of New York (the
“Bankruptcy Court”) vacating certain liens held against Debtors’
property located in Roslyn Estates, New York.
However, a review
of the Bankruptcy Court docket reveals that the parties entered
into a settlement agreement on July 31, 2013, which states in
[u]pon the issuance of the appropriate Court
Order approving this Settlement, Interlink
shall discontinue with prejudice its appeal
from the May 1, 2013 Court (by Honorable Alan
S. Trust) Order Avoiding Judicial Liens
Pursuant to 11 U.S.C. § 522(f) entered in the
above-captioned Chapter 13 proceeding by
taking the necessary steps in the U.S.
District Court, Eastern District of New York
(case number 2:13-cv-03714-js) to do so.
(Settlement Agreement & General Release, In re Katlowitz, No. 812-74968-ast (Bankr. E.D.N.Y. Aug. 5, 2013), Docket Entry 88-3,
On September 4, 2013, upon Debtors’ motion, the Bankruptcy
Court entered an order approving the Settlement Agreement and
Accordingly, the Court DISMISSES WITH PREJUDICE
Appellant’s appeal in light of the so ordered settlement agreement.
Further, an independent basis of dismissal also exists
due to Appellant’s inexcusable failures to file an appellate brief
pursuant to Rule 8009 of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure
and to communicate with the Court since it filed its notice of
appeal over seven months ago.
See Bristol v. Ackerman (In re
Marcel C. Bristol), No. 09–CV–1638, 2010 WL 1223053 (E.D.N.Y. May
DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE.
The Clerk of the Court is directed to
enter judgment accordingly and mark this appeal CLOSED.
