Unlike most civil litigation that includes a limited number of parties and disputes regarding discrete claims or specific corporate assets, a Chapter 11 reorganization plan by definition involves all of the debtor's business, assets, capital structure and stakeholders. When a plan is approved over the objection of one or more interested parties and no stay pending appeal is obtained, the capital structure is usually completely altered, financing closed and assets conveyed. The question presented in these situations is whether an appeal should be allowed to proceed if no stay is obtained and implementation of the plan proceeds, or should the appeal be dismissed under the doctrine of "equitable mootness."

Over the years, companies often file Chapter 11 bankruptcy and, for a number of reasons, never make it through the entire process to approval of a Chapter 11 plan of reorganization. In some cases, the company is unable to reorganize and the case is converted to a liquidation proceeding under Chapter 7. In other instances, the court determines that the debtor did not commence the case in good faith for a proper reorganization purpose and dismisses the proceeding.
