Lexis Practice Advisor Practice-Advisor

In a unanimous decision authored by Justice Ginsburg, the
Court holds that “the adjudication of a motion for relief
from the automatic stay forms a discrete procedural unit
within the embracive bankruptcy case,” which “yields a final,
appealable order when the bankruptcy court unreservedly
grants or denies relief.” Ritzen Grp., Inc. v. Jackson Masonry,
LLC, 205 L. Ed. 2d 419, 424 (2020) (Ritzen).
