CourtU.S. District Court — Eastern District of California

ORDER (1) DENYING STAY MOTION AND (2) TRANSFERRING IFP

MOTION TO DISTRICT COURT (Response Required)

Before: DUNN and PAPPAS, Bankruptcy Judges.

This appeal has been judicially reviewed.

1. Motion for Stay Pending Appeal.

Appellant filed a motion for stay pending appeal with the BAP on November 7, 2011.

Fed. R. Bankr. P. 8005 requires that a request for stay pending appeal must ordinarily be presented to the bankruptcyjudge in the first instance.

Considerations of orderly procedure require that appellant move for a stay pending appeal in the bankruptcy court before seeking a stay from the BAP. The bankruptcy court has continuing jurisdiction to determine motions for stay pending appeal. See Ho v. Dai Hwa Elecs. (In re Ho), 265 B.R. 603 (9th Cir. BAP 2001).

Accordingly, the motion for stay pending appeal is hereby ORDERED DENIED without prejudice to re-filing if it is demonstrated that a motion for stay pending appeal was presented to the bankruptcy judge and was either denied or not acted upon in a timely manner.

2. Motion for Fee Waiver.

This appeal is properly before the Bankruptcy Appellate Panel under 28 U.S.C. § 158. As no party filed a timely election to have the appeals heard by the United States District Court under 28 U.S.C. § 158(c), jurisdiction lies with the Panel.

On September 21, 2011, appellant filed in the bankruptcy court a motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis with respect to this appeal ("IFP Motion"). The IFP Motion was forwarded to the Panel and received on October 4, 2011.

Under the holding of Perroton v. Gray (In re Perroton), 958 F.2d 889 (9th Cir. 1992) and Determan v. Sandoval (In reSandoval), 186 B.R. 490, 496 (9th Cir. BAP 1995), the Panel has no authority to grant in forma pauperis motions under 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a) because bankruptcy courts are not "court[s] of the United States" as defined in 28 U.S.C. § 451.

However, the district court* has authority to allow a person to file an appeal without prepayment of the filing fee. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a).

Therefore, Appellant's IFP Motion is hereby TRANSFERRED to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California for the limited purpose of ruling on the IFP Motion.

It is Appellant's responsibility to take all necessary steps to have the IFP Motion considered by the district court within a reasonable period of time.

No later than Thursday, December 8, 2011, appellant must file with the Panel and serve on opposing counsel a written response which includes as an exhibit a copy of the district court's order on the IFP Motion or an explanation of the steps appellant has taken to have the IFP Motion considered by the district court.

For the convenience of the district court, copies of the notice of appeal, the judgment on appeal, and the IFP Motion are attached to this order.
