Under the current bankruptcy appellate system, appeals from dispositive orders of bankruptcy judges are taken to the district court or to the bankruptcy appellate panel, with further appeal as of right to the court of appeals. This report describes the bankruptcy appellate system now operating in the U.S. and how it evolved, sets out the recent efforts to change this system, and analyzes the evidence regarding the need for change and the desirability of proposed changes. Summarizes the study's major points regarding precedent, disposition speed, cost, process, and outcome under the current appellate system, and how the proposed alternative systems might differ on these dimensions.
