In re E.C. Morris Corp

14 FED App 0010P (6th Cir)
Where the court lacks subject matter jurisdiction, an order denying a Motion to Enforce Order Approving Compromise of Claims is appropriate.
Procedural context:
Appeal form the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio at Akron.
Appellants sought to stop state court litigation by the Appellees from continuing based on an agreement entered into by Appellants and the Chapter 7 Trustee to compromise the estate's claims against Appellants. The Court found it lacked jurisdiction to find in favor of the Appellants for several reasons: the Appellees were not part of the compromise reached between the Appellants and the Chapter 7 Trustee, the Debtor was a corporation, Appellants litigation was instituted prior to the bankruptcy filings. Therefore, based on Stern v Marshall, the Court lacked jurisdiction.
Harrison, Humphrey, Lloyd.
