Publisher Description

Argued: April 8, 2002 Philip Kassover appeals from Judge Baer's refusal under 28 U.S.C. § 158(a)(3) 1 to grant him leave to appeal a preliminary injunction issued by the bankruptcy court for the Southern District of New York. See Gibson v. Kassover (In re Kassover), No. 01-CV-11769, 2002 WL 100640, at *2 (S.D.N.Y. Jan. 24, 2002); see also 28 U.S.C. § 158(a)(3). Appellant argues that: (i) we have appellate jurisdiction pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1292(a)(1) 2 to review the district court's decision; (ii) the preliminary injunction entered by the bankruptcy court should be vacated; and (iii) the district court abused its discretion in denying him leave to appeal. We hold that 28 U.S.C. § 1292(a)(1) does not vest us with jurisdiction to review a district court's exercise of discretion in denying leave to appeal an interlocutory order of a bankruptcy court, including injunctions, under 28 U.S.C. § 158(a)(3). We therefore dismiss the appeal. BACKGROUND
