There was a news story posted on YouTube by Bloomberg Law's Bill on Bankruptcy concerning our own U.S. District Judge Lynn Hughes, from the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas, Houston Division. For those who don't know, U.S. District Judges sit as appellate judges for bankruptcy judges.

And as the video explains, they also have the power to "withdraw the reference" or take back jurisdiction over a bankruptcy case, from a bankruptcy judge. The commentator points out that not only did Judge Hughes do that, but what was extraordinary, if that he indicated that we would re-hear all of the matters that have heretofore been decided in the bankruptcy case.
