Bankruptcy Adv. Proc. A05-90020 DMD
THE HONORABLE TIMOTHY M. BURGESS
ORDER FROM CHAMBERS
The Bankruptcy Court has filed a sua sponte motion to withdraw reference in this matter.
Docket 1. The Report and Recommendation of the Bankruptcy Court indicates that a trial of
this matter was held on May 10, 2006, and recommends entry of an order and judgment in favor
of the plaintiff for the sum of $15,000.00 together with interest, costs and attorney’s fees. Id.
Defendant Crawford has filed objections to the Report and Recommendation, and an
Opposition to the Withdrawal of Reference, complaining that he was not provided with notice of
the May 10, 2006, trial date, and therefore was not provided the opportunity to attend trial.
Defendant requests a new trial.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED:
The Motion to Withdraw Reference is DENIED, without prejudice. This matter is
REMANDED to the Bankruptcy Court for resolution of the Defendant’s objections to the Report
and Recommendation and, if appropriate, for a new trial. See AK LBR 9023-1.
Entered at the direction of the Honorable Timothy M. Burgess, United States District Judge.
