Flynn v. Zeitler (In re Zeitler)

Defendant debtor filed a motion for an extension of time to file an appeal of an order, which granted plaintiff trustee summary judgment on a claim that the debtor's interest in a family trust was included in the bankruptcy estate and that the trustee had authority to liquidate that interest.
Ruling: 
Counsel's inadvertent calendering of appeal deadline for wrong date was not excusable neglect that would justify an extension.
