In re: SemCrude LP, 12-2736

Following confirmation of debtors' reorganization plan, the dismissal of the creditor's appeal of the debtors' requested global procedure on equitable mootness grounds, a judge-made abstention doctrine that allows a court to avoid hearing the merits of a bankruptcy appeal because implementing the requested relief would cause havoc, is reversed and remanded, where the evidentiary record does not support debtors' contentions that a successful appeal would collapse their plan of reorganization or undermine the justifiable reliance of third parties to their significant harm.
