The underlying dispute involves a note and mortgage that have changed hands multiple times. The crux of Jackson’s complaint, in its original iteration and as amended, is that certain attempts to foreclose the mortgage were wrongful. the court dismissed most of the counts and rule in favor of the plaintiff only as to the violation of the automatic stay, but reduced the amount of the damages granted and the amount of attorneys fees.

Jackson attempted to appeal “from every adverse ruling” of the bankruptcy court, leaving the Panel to guess precisely what other rulings she intends to appeal.
