(6th Cir. Aug. 31, 2017)

The Sixth Circuit affirms the bankruptcy court’s decision finding the bank had a superior interest in the proceeds of an auction of the debtor’s cattle. The appellant contended its interest as lessor was superior and that the Sixth Circuit had already determined it was entitled to the proceeds. The bankruptcy did not err in determining ownership of the cattle at the time of the auction after the prior remand. Opinion below.
