9th Circuit Reverses $85 million Judgment in Favor of Vickie Lynn MarshallThe 68 page 9th Circuit opinion is here. They remanded to the District Court which presumably will remand to the Bankruptcy Court. But Judge Bufford will probably be gone by the time it gets back as he is retiring in September. What is a little strange to me is that after 68 pages, the ruling is that Judge Bufford had no jurisdiction simply, "Because the Texas probate court’s judgment was the earliest final judgment entered on matters relevant to this proceeding, the district court erred when it did not afford preclusive effect to the Texas probate court’s determination of relevant legal and factual issues."
