http://nycourts.law.com/CourtDocumentViewer.asp?view=Document&docID=46716 Judge Lynch AN ATTORNEY for certain plaintiffs who filed lawsuits in Ohio against appellee insurance companies, appealed from a bankruptcy court order temporarily enjoining further prosecution of those lawsuits. Appellees contended that appellant lacks standing to appeal the order because he is not “an aggrieved person, a person directly and adversely affected pecuniarily by the challenged order of the bankruptcy court.” The court dismissed the appeal for lack of jurisdiction, finding it far from clear that appellant has standing to appeal even though the injunction specifically binds him in his capacity as attorney for the plaintiffs in the Ohio actions and restrains him as well as his clients from filing or prosecuting actions. The court noted that appellant’s argument that the bankruptcy court’s earlier injunctions do not apply to the Ohio suits does not control whether the present injunction is appropriate since appellant’s challenge to the bankruptcy court’s jurisdiction is without merit.
