In re Balas & Morales (Bankr. C.D. Cal.)

U.S. Trustee's Motion for Leave to Appeal


Series of court filings from In re Balas & Morales, the California case in which twenty bankruptcy judges jointly signed an opinion striking down the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) as unconstitutional to the extent it barred lawfully married same-sex couples from filing joint bankruptcy petitions.

This is the U.S. Trustee's motion for leave to appeal, in case the Court's order denying the motion to dismiss was deemed interlocutory (that is, not final and appealable).
