NOTICE OF APPEAL TO SUPERIOR COURT


oRDER DATED SEPTEMBER 28, 2015
AND NOW on this 18th day of October 2015, Petitioner, Stanley Caterbone, appearing pro

s, hereby appeals to the Superior Court of Pennsylvania the

ORDER dated

the

28th

day of

September, 2015 by the Honorable Dennis Reinaker for the Petition for Review. The ORDER states

the foflowing: *AND NOW, this 28th day of Septemberr 2OLS, the Court has examined the
Petition for Review of Private Criminal Gomplaint. The Court finds no basis which to

overturn the decision disapproving the filing of criminal charges".


The Petitioner cites Case No. MD 879-2007 specifically the ORDER dated 27th day of
November, 2OO7 bV then President Judge Louis J. Farina which states the following: *AND NOW,
this 27th day of November, 2OA7, upon consideration of the Petition for Review of
Private Criminal Complaint and Brief in Support thereof, and it appearing that the
District Attorney's refusal to approve the private complaint due to "insufficient
evidence"', obligates the Court to conduct a "de novo" review to determine whether the
complaint establishes a prima facie case, see, Michaels v. Barrasse, 681 A.2d 1362 (Pa,
Super. 1996), and In re Private Criminal Compl. Of Wilson ll., 879 A.2d 199 (Pa. Super.
2OO5), the Commonwealth is therefore directed to file an answer to the Petition with
sufficient specificity to identify the information relied upon and lo explain the
Gommonwealth's decision to disapprove the filing of Petitioner's private criminal
complaint".
The Petitioner will argue that this same "de novo" review must be applied to this Petition

for Review according to the case law cited above.

Plaintiff requests that this appeal be filed under the rule 552 A) In Forma Pauperis under

the Pennsylvania Rules of Appellate Procedure. Verification Statement, Application, and Argument
for Approval is attached.

APPEAL FOR RECONSIDERATION fOT IN FORMA PAUPERIS STATUS


AND NOW on this 16th day of October, 2015

I,

STANLEY

MEDIA GROUP, Petitioners, appearing pro se, do hereby

J. CATERBONE and ADVANCED

file the Appeal for

Reconsideration

pertaining to the REJECTION NOTICE with the Transaction ID:57985968 filed on October 8th, 2015
DENYING

the Praecipe to reinstate claiming the following " Praecipe to reinstate requires a filing of

$8.75.

PA State Rules require

a party to

inform the court

of

improvement

in

financial

circumstances. Your most recent IFP was denied. The IFP granted in this case is from 2008".

If the Court (NOT OFFICE OF PROTHONOTARY!)

would consider the legal circumstances

surrounding my Whistleblowing activities and the Federal False Claims Act filing of the Petitioner

as

it

relates to the past 28 years and the myriad of violations of the Lancaster County District

Attorney, the Petitioner will argue that it is wholly unfair and unconstitutional not to grant the
Petitioner

In Forma Pauperis Status. The Petitioner has filed ample evidence of a pattern and

relentless cycle of earning and accumulating capital and assets, as well building substantial worth

through his business interests, only to have it all extorted through an elaborate civil and criminal
scheme to defruad, Therefore any attempt to subject the Petitioner

to more court related

fees is only a continuation of that same said fraud.

/2

The above captioned case contains all the said evidence needed to support my
claims. If need be, there are several cases in the United States District Court for the
Eastern District of Pennsylvania, such as 05-2288 and O6-465O that will suffice. In
addition I am claiming that this rejection was also in retaliation for my recent appeal to
the U.S. Third Circuit Court of Appeals in regards to Lisa Lambelt v. Superintendent
Framingham MCI, et al.

am only several weeks away from a decision by a Panel of Third Circuit Judges
that may set Lisa Michelle Lambeft FREE for the rest of her natural life! In addition,
before the same said panel is an argument to grant me SUMMARY JUDGEMENT in all
federal and state court cases of which I am the PLAINTIFF seeking redress.
Consideration should be given

to

Pederson

v. South Williamsport Area School

District,

where the courts interpreted due process, as "Essentially fundamental fairness is exactly what due
process means". Furthermore, the United States District Courts in Perry v. Coyler (L978, 524

the probability of unfairness can result in

2d. 644) have concluded the following: "Even

defendant being deprived of his due process rights...". The focus of these claims are recorded in

the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, 05-2288 and 06-4650. In
addition the Petioner is the MOVANT in the Lisa Michelle Lambrerft Case and recently filed a
Motion for Summary Judgment, 04-2559, which was recently appealed to the Third Circuit Court

of Appeals. The preceding cases have been preserved by the Third Circuit Court of Appeals in
case no. 07-4474, see attached.

The prosecutorial misconduct the the Petitioner has been subject to has violated his
constitutional rights, but more importantly the abuse or process has prevented the Petitioner from
completing a wealth of claims in both state and federal Courts. 51983 Civil Rights Acts and 18
U.S.C.A. Acts state the following: "The underlying purpose of the scheme of protecting
constitutional rights are to permit victims of constitutional violations to obtain redress, to provide
for federal prosecution of serious constitutional violations when state criminal proceedings are
ineffective for purpose of deterring violations and to strike a balance between protection of
individual rights from state infringement and protection from state and local government from
federal interference", 18 U.S.C.A. gg 24L, 242; U.S.C.A. - Const. Art. 2, 53; Amend. t3, L4, 5,
15, $ 2: 42 U.S.C.A. SS 1981-1982, 1985, 1988, Fed. Rules Civil Proc. Rule 28, U.S.C.A.
A case can be made for a RICO violation as defined in the case of United States v. Holck,

389 F. Supp. 2d. 338, criminal responsibility defines single or multiple conspiracies by the
following: "Governments, without committing variance between single conspiracy charges in an

,3

indictment and it's proof at trial may establish existence at continuing core conspiracy which
attracts different members at different times and which involves different subgroups committing
acts in fuftherance of an overall plan". This illustrates the legal analysis of the 1987 conspiracy to
cover-up my International Signal & Control, Plc., whistle blowing activities.
The attached 29 False Arrests, which under Pennsylvania Law, constitute a conspiracy that

may be proved by circumstantial evidence that is by acts and circumstances sufficient to warrant

an inference that the unlawful combination has been in front of facts formed for the purpose
charged. See Walcker v. North Wales Boro, 395 F. Supp. 2d.2L9. In the same case the following
was supported: "Arrestee's allegations that the township (Conestoga) and it's police officers were
acting in conceft and conspiracy and with the purpose of violating arrestee's constitutional rights
by subjecting him to unreasonable force, arrest, search, and malicious prosecution and the two
(2) or more officers acted together in throwing arrestee to the ground (April 5th, 2006 and August
4th, 2006) and forcing him to take two (2) blood tests and holding him in custody", The preceding
pleaded civil conspiracy claims under Pennsylvania Law.

In order to state a claim for civil conspiracy and a cause of action under Pennsylvania Law, a
plaintiff must allege that two (2) or more persons agree or combine with lawful intent to do an
unlawful act or to do an otherwise lawful act by unlawful means, with proof of malice with

intent to injure the person, his/her property and or business, In the case of United States

v.

Holck, 389 F, Supp. 2d. 338, criminal responsibility defines single or multiple conspiracies by

the following: "Governments, without committing variance between single conspiracy charges
in an indictment and itb proof at trial may establish existence at continuing core conspiracy
which attracts different members at different times and which involves different subgroups
committing acts in fuftherance of an overall plan". 51983 Civil Rights Acts and 18 U.S.C.A.
Acts state the following: "The underlying purpose of the scheme of protecting constitutional
rights are to permit victims of constitutional violations to obtain redress, to provide for federal
prosecution of serious constitutional violations when state criminal proceedings are ineffective

for purpose of deterring violations and to strike a balance between protection of individual
rights from state infringement and protection from state and local government from federal
interference", 18 U.S.C.A. 95 241,242; U.S.C.A. - Const. Art.2,53; Amend. 13, 14,5, 15, 5
2:42U.5.C.A. 55 1981-1982, 1985, 1988, Fed. Rules Civil Proc. Rule 28, U.S.C,A.
Under RICO, a person or group who commits any two of 35 crimes-27 federal crimes and

crimes-within a 1O-year period and, in the opinion of the US Attorney bringing the case,
has committed those crimes with similar purpose or results can be charged with racketeering.
Those found guilty of racketeering can be fined up to $25,000 and/or sentenced to 20 years in
B state

t?

prison. In addition, the racketeer must forfeit all ill-gotten gains and interest in any business
gained through a pattern of "racketeering activity." The act also contains a civil component that
allows plaintiffs to sue for triple damages. When the U.S. Attorney decides to indict someone
under RICO, he has the option of seeking a pre-trial restraining order or injunction to prevent the

transfer of potentially forfeitable property, as well as require the defendant to put up a


performance bond. This provision is intended to force a defendant to plead guilty before
indictment. There is also a provision for private pafties to sue. A "person damaged in his business

or property" can sue one or more

"racketeers." There must also be an "enterprise." The

defendant(s) are not the enterprise, in other words, the defendant(s) and the enterprise are not
one and the same. There must be one of four specified relationships between the defendant(s)
and the enterprise. This lawsuit, like all Federal civil lawsuits, can take place in either Federal or
Sta

Where RICO laws might be appliedl


Although some of the RICO predicate acts are extoftion and blackmail, one of the most
Successful applications of the RICO laws has been the ability to indict or sanction individuals for

their behavior and actions committed against witnesses and victims in alleged retaliation or
retribution for cooperating with law enforcement or intelligence agencies. The RICO laws can be
alleged in cases where civil lawsuits or criminal charges are brought against individuals or
corporations in retaliation for said individuals or corporations working with law enforcement, or
against individuals or corporations who have sued or filed criminal charges against a defendant.

Anti-SLAPP (strategic lawsuit against public participation) laws can be applied in an attempt

to curb alleged abuses of the legal system by individuals or corporations who utilize the courts as
a weapon to retaliate against whistle blowers, victims, or to silence another's speech. RICO could
be alleged if it can be shown that lawyers and/or their clients conspired and collaborated to
concoct fictitious legal complaints solely in retribution and retaliation for themselves having been
brought before the courts. These laws also apply to victims of clergy abuse where statute of
limitations has run out.

OPIMON OF

TFTE

COURT

BARRY, Circuit Judee


This case involves an untimely notice of appeal to the
District Court after the Bankruptcy Court's dismissal, for
cause, of a Chapter 11 petition. The question before us is
whether, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. $ 158(c)(2) and the Federal
Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure, an untimely filing such as the
one at issue here deprives subsequent reviewing cotrtsJtere,
both the District Court and this Court--of jurisdiction over
the appeal. We conclude that it does. Accordingly, we will
dismiss the instant appeal and remand to the District Court
with instnrctions to dismiss the appeal to it from the
Bankruptcy Court for lack of subject matter jurisdiction.

I.

Background

Appellant Stanley J. Caterbone filed a Chapter I I


bankruptcy petition in May 2005. The United States Trustee
subsequently moved to dismiss the petition for cause, and the
Bankruptcy Court granted the motion on October 3,2006,
citing various substantive and procedural deficiencies.
u.s.c. $ 1112(b).

,See 11

The order of dismissal was mailed to Caterbone by


first class mail on October 5, 2006. On October 16, he sent a
notice of appeal by first class mail and elecfonic mail.
However, the notice of appeal was filed with the District
Conrt on October 19, rendering it untimely because it
occurred outside the ten-day window, then in place, for filing

of appeal. ^See Fed. R. Bankr. P. 8002(a) (2006).t It


is undisputed that Caterbone did not file a "request to extend
the time for filing a notice of appeal ... by written motioa .. .
before the time for filing a notice of appeal ha[d] expired,"
nor did the Bankruptcy Court grant such an extension
following "a motion filed not later than 20 days after the
expiration of the time for filing a notice of appeal ... upon a
showing of excusable neglect." Id.8002(cX2).
a notice

Despite its untimely filing, Caterbone's appeal was


docketed in the District Court on November 14, and the
Trustee did not axgue that it was untimely. On March 15,
2007, the Court sua sponte dismissed the appeal, citing
Caterbone's failure to comply with Fed. R. Bankr. P. 8006,
which requires that a petitioner designate "items to be
included in the record on appeal and a statement of the issues
to be presented." Caterbone appealed to this Cowt. Shortly
thereafter, the Trustee moved to dismiss the appeal, citing, for
the first time, Caterbone's initial untimely notice of appeal,
and arguing that, as a result of the untimely filing, the Dishict
Court lacked subject matter jurisdiction.

Following various intervening events, including the


appointment of amicus curiae, the case is now before us. The
Trustee argues that, consistent with Bowles v. Russell, 551

t In amending Fed. R. Bankr. P. 8002(a), effective

December l, 2A09, to expand the time for filing a notice of


appeal to fourteen days, the Supreme Court's accompanying
Order provided that the amendment *shall govern in all
proceedings in bankruptcy cases thereafter cornmenced and,
insofar as just and practicable, all proceedings then pending."
Supreme Court of the United States, Order Amending Federal
Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure (Mar. 26,2009). The Trustee
argues that the'Just and practicable" rationale is inapplicable
here. Moreover, the Trustee notes that Caterbone's notice of
appeal was dated, but not filed, on October 16, and argues,
persuasively in our view, that even if the expanded period
were to apply, the notice of appeal was still untimely because
it was filed the sixteenth day after entry of the Bankruptcy
Court's

order.

U.S. 205 (2007), Section 158(cX2) established a mandatory,

jurisdictional deadline that statutorily encompasses Rule


8002(a)'s specified timeline for appealing the judgment of a
bankruptcy court, such that the timeline is not akin to a
freestanding, waivable "claim-processing rule" within the
meaning of Kontrick v. Ryan,540 U.S. 443 (2004). Amicus
argues similarly. Caterbone, on the other hand, elides the
Bov,les analysis and argues,inter alia,thathis untimely filing
should be addressed, and excused, under the standard of
"excusable neglect" set forth in Pioneer Inv. Sertts. Co. v.
BrunswickAssocs. Ltd. P'ship,507 U.S. 380 (1993).

For the reasons explained below, we hold that the


prescribed timeline within which an appeal from a bankruptcy
court must be filed is mandatory and jurisdictional, thus
affrrming, in light of Bowles, the nrle that we applied in
Shareholders v. Sound Radio, Inc., 109 F.3d 873, 879 (3d
Cir. 1997).

II.

Jurisdiction and Standard of Review

Jurisdiction is the threshold issue in this case, and we


must address its relevance both to the decision rendered by
the Disfrict Court, and to our review of that decision. Thus,
as an initial matter, we note that we have jurisdiction over the
final decision that the Disfrict Court rendered on Caterbone's
appeal from the Bankruptcy Court. 28 U.S.C. $ 158(dxl).
Our authority includes reviewing whether the District Court's
own exercise ofjurisdiction, per $ 158(a), was proper. That
is because "subject-matter jurisdiction, because it involves a
court's power to hear a case, can never be forfeited or
waived[, such that courts] ... have an independent obligation
to determine whether subject-matter jurisdiction exists, even
in the absence of a challenge from any pafty." Arbaugh v. Y
& H Corp., 546 U.S. 500, 514 (2006) (internal quotation
marks and citation omitted).

Ordinarily, we apply plenary review to final orders of


a district court sitting as an appellate court reviewing the
decision of a bankruptcy court. In re Carnegie Ctr. Assocs.,
129 F.3d 290,294 (3d Cir. 1997). However, following from

our obligation to determine the threshold issue of subject


matter jurisdiction, see Arbaugh, 546 U.S. at 514, and where,

as here, a party "contest[s] our jurisdiction and that of the


Distict Court, ... [w]e exercise de novo review over [the]
question[] of subject matterjurisdiction." Great W. Mining &
Mineral Co. v. Fox Rothschild LLP,615 F.3d 159, 163 (3d
Cir. 2010). This is the case even where, again as here, a
district court "exercis[es its] jurisdiction" and dismisses a
cause of action for some other reason. Id. If our independent
review yields the conclusion that the District Court lacked
subject matter jurisdiction over an appeal from the
Bankruptcy Court, the appropriate disposition is dismissal of
the appeal. In re Caribbean Tubular Corp.,8l3 F.2d 533,
535 (lst Cir. 1987) (holding that where it is found that a
district court lacked appellate jurisdiction over a bankruptcy
court order, the court of appeals must dismiss the appeal to
and remand to the distict court with instnrctions to vacate its
order and to dismiss the appeal from the bankruptcy court).

i!

III. Discussion
An appeal from a decision of a bankruptcy court is
subject to the requirements of 28 U.S.C. $ 158(cX2), which
provides that appeals "shall be taken in the same manner as
appeals in civil proceedings generally are taken to the courts
of appeals from the disftict courts and in the time provided by
Rule 8002 of the Bankruptcy Rules." When Caterbone filed
his appeal, that rule provided, in relevant part, that "notice of
appeal shall be filed with the clerk within 10 days of the date
of the entry of the judgment, order, or decree appealed from."
Fed. R. Bankr. P. 8002(a) (2006).
Although Kontrick affirmed as "'a)domatic"' the
proposition that requirements contained in a bankruptcy rule
alone are not jurisdictional (and, hence, are waivable), 540
U.S. at 453 (citation omitted), Section 158 provides the
statutory basis for the courts' jurisdiction over bankruptcy

appeals. See 28 U.S.C. $ 158(a) & (d) (specifrng


circumstances of "district courts['] ... jurisdiction to hear
appeals" and the "courts of appeals['] ... jurisdiction").

Because Section 158 also specihes the time within which an

taken-i.e., *in the time provided by Rule

8002"-that requirement is jurisdictional. As

Bowles

clarified, both acknowledging and distinguishing Kontrick,


"the taking of an appeal within [a statutorily] prescribed time
is mandatory and jurisdictional." 551 U.S. at 209 (internal
quotation marks and citations omitted). Accordingly, "failure
to file [a] notice of appeal in accordance with the statute
therefore deprive[s] ... [courts] of jurisdiction[, and bars a
par{y from] ... rely[ing] on forfeiture or waiver to excuse [a]
lack of compliance with the statute's time limitations." Id. at
21 3

(citation omitted).

Here, even though it is a bankruptcy rule that


the time within which an appeal must be file4 the
incorporation of that rule renders its requirement
and, hence, jurisdictional and non-waivable. As the

statutory

Supreme
Court recently observed, while *the distinction between

including th[e] Coutt's interpretation of similar provisions in
many years past, is relevant to whether a statute ranks a

requirement .N jr.risdictional." Reed Elsevier,


Muchnick, l30 S. Ct. 1237, 1243, 124748 (2010).

Inc.

y.

Beyond the fact that the statutory text of Section


158(cX2) incorporates a time condition, historical context
also supports our holding. Prior to Kontrick anrd Bowles, we
regarded Rule 8002(a)'s time limit for filing a notice of
appeal as jrnisdictional. See Shareholders, 109 F.3d at 879;
Whitemere Dev. Corp., fnc. v. Clerry Hill Twp.,786 F.2d
185, 187 (3d Cir. 1986); In re Universal Minerals, Inc.,'155
F.2d 309, 31 I (3d Cir. 1985). Kontick-and" later, Eberhart
v. United States,546 U.S. 12 (2005farguably provided the
opportunity to question whether this rule remained correct.
That being said, a careful reading of Kontrick, Bowles, and
Reed Elsevier confirms that the rule we affrrmed in
Shareholders, Witemere, and Universal Minerals remains
the rule today.

in

discharge
bankruptcy are non-jurisdictional "claimprocessing rules," Kontrick noted that Congress's statutory
grant ofjurisdiction to the courts to adjudicate discharges in
bankruptcy contains no reference to a time condition. 540
U.S. at 4s2-s3 (citing 28 U.S.c. $ 157(bxl), (b)(2)(I), and
(bX2XD).'z To the contary, in holding that the statutorilyprescribed time provision for filing an appeal in a federal
habeas corpus proceeding ls jurisdictional, Bowles expressly
stated: "Today we make clear that the timely filing of a notice
of appeal in a civil case is a jurisdictional requirement." 551
U.S. at 214. Moreover, notwithstanding the fact that Arbaugh
could be read to state that a clear statement rule applies to
Congress's identification

of a

statutory limitation

as

jurisdictionalo see 546 U.S. at 515-16," Reed Elsevier more


recently clarified that, again dla Bowles,

the relevant question ... is not ... whether [a


particular statutory provision] itself has long
2

Likewise, rn Eberhart, 546 U.S. at 16, 21, the Court


concluded that time provisions in the Federal Rules of
Criminal hocedure were non-jurisdictional, and thus
waivable. ln Arbaugh, 546 U.S. at 515, the Court conoluded
that a numerical provision affecting Title VII claims, but
which was separate from Title VII's jurisdictional provision,
thereby was not jurisdictional.
3 As the
Court stated inArbaugh:
[W]e think it the sounder course to refrain from
constricting $ l33l or Title VII's jurisdictional
provision" and to leave the ball in Congress'
court. If the Legislature clearly states that a
threshold limitation on a statute's scope shall
count as jurisdictional, then courls and litigants
will be duly instructed and will not be left to
wrestle with the issue. But when Congress does
not rank a statutory limitation on coverage as
jurisdictional, courts should treat the restriction
as nonjurisdictional in character.

omitted).

been labeled jwisdictional, but whether the type

of limitation that [it] imposes is one that is


properly ranked as jurisdictional absent an
express designation. The statutory limitation in
Bowles was of a type that we had long held did
"speak in jurisdictional terms" even absent a
'Jurisdictional" label, and nothing about [that
provision's] text or context, or the historical
treatment of that type of limitation, justified a
departure from this view.
130 S.

A.at1248.

It is evident, in light of Shareholders,lY'hitemere, and


Universal Minerals, that we "ha[ve] long held" that Section
158(c)(2)'s incorporation of the filing timeline specified in
Rule 8002(a) "speak[s] in jurisdictional terms[,] even absent a
jurisdictional label, and [that] nothing about [its] text or
context, or [itsJ historical treafinent ... justifre[s] a departrne
from this view." See Reed Elsevier, 130 S. Ct. at 1248.
Because it was both prior to and shortly after Reed Elsevier
that we affirmed in non-precedential opinions that the time
requirement for filing a bankruptcy appeal is jurisdictional,
we now take the occasion to so hold in a precedential
opinion.a Doing so comports with the fact that, unlike the
rules that Eberhart andKontrick held were non-jurisdictional,
Rule 8002(a)'s time limit is rooted in a congressionallyenacted statute. ,See Fed.
Bankr. P. 8002, advisory
(noting
committee note
that "th[e] rule is an adaptation of'
Fed. R. App.P.a(a)); see also Bowles,55l U.S. at2l2,2l3

(internal quotation marks and citations omitted)). Taking all
of this into consideration, we conclude that the rule we
enunciated in Shareholders rerrrains good law.5
cases after a certain period has elapsed

Given the fact that subject matter jurisdiction over


Caterbone's appeal to the Distict Court wff, and is,
lacking-and that jurisdictional defect also bars us from
reviewing the merits of his appeal le us-\Ms need not address
the Court's dismissal of his appeal for failure to prosecute.
Nor need we address Caterbone's argument that his
"excusable neglecf' saves his untimely filing, given the clear
text of Rule 8002 and the guidance of Sharelnlders:

Rule 8002(c) ... requires that even in cases of


excusable neglect, the issue must be raised and
the appeal filed within the ... window of Rule
8002 (Rule 8002(a)'s [timeline] forthe appeal +
8002(c)'s [timeline] for the extension). The
rule does not allow a party to claim excusable
neglect after the [time period] ha[s] expired.
109 F.3d at 879 (internal citations omitted). Finally, we
decline to address Caterbone's remaining arguments, because
they do not pertain to the threshold issue ofjurisdiction.

IV. Conclusion
For the foregoing reasons, we will dismiss the instant
appeal and remand to the Distict Court with instructions to
dismiss Caterbone's appeal from the Bankruptcy Cor.rt for
lack of subject matter jurisdiction.

Our conclusion is consistent with the holdings of our


sister circuits ttrat have affirmed that the filing timeline for
bankruptcy appeals is jurisdictional. See In re Latntre, 605
F.3d 830, 837 (10ttt Cir. 2010); In re Wiersma,483 F.3d 933,
