Bankruptcy Appellate Panel

A Bankruptcy Appellate Panel (abbreviated BAP) is a group of judges of the United States bankruptcy courts who are appointed to hear appeals from certain bankruptcy cases under the supervision of the United States courts of appeals.

Not all of the federal judicial circuits have yet convened Bankruptcy Appellate Panels. As of 2008, only the First, Sixth, Eighth, Ninth, and Tenth Circuits had convened these panels.

Famous quotes containing the word bankruptcy:

    The heritage of the American Revolution is forgotten, and the American government, for better and for worse, has entered into the heritage of Europe as though it were its patrimony—unaware, alas, of the fact that Europe’s declining power was preceded and accompanied by political bankruptcy, the bankruptcy of the nation-state and its concept of sovereignty.
    Hannah Arendt (1906–1975)
