MEMORANDUM***

2

The parties are familiar with the facts of this case, and we will not give a detailed restatement here. After the bankruptcy court granted California Federal Bank's motion to amend the lift of the automatic stay, HAK Nineteenth Street Corporation (HAK) motioned the bankruptcy court to reconsider its decision to amend. The bankruptcy court denied HAK's motion to reconsider, and it was this denial that HAK appealed to the Bankruptcy Appellate Panel (BAP). The BAP dismissed HAK's appeal, noting that there were no longer any assets in the HAK bankruptcy estate. HAK appeals.

We review a bankruptcy court's denial of a motion to reconsider for abuse of discretion. See In re Watson, 192 B.R. 739, 845 (B.A.P. 9th Cir.1996) (citing In re Donovan, 871 F.2d 807, 808 (9th Cir.1989)); In re Sandoval, 186 B.R. 490, 493 (B.A.P. 9th Cir.1995). Having reviewed the record in this case, we find that the bankruptcy court did not abuse its discretion. Consequently, we affirm the decision of the bankruptcy court.
