The appellants challenge the district court's final judgment, reversing and vacating the bankruptcy court's amended judgment, that their mechanics' liens on the property of the debtor did not pertain to materials or labor supplied before Sept. 1, 2006, the date on which the appellee bank perfected its deed of trust lien. The bankruptcy court clearly erred; at best, the appellants engaged in evaluative, preliminary or preparatory work before Sept. 1. The district court's final judgment is affirmed. 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, No. 12-10386, 04-05-2013.
