No. Usually, the bankruptcy case will remain open until all of the issues, including adversary proceedings, are resolved and closed.
I disagree with my colleagues, I believe that the answer to this question is YES, according to this case: IN RE KIESLICH, 258 F.3d 968 (9th Cir. 2001)
Questions of bankruptcy court and federal jurisdiction are often mind-numbingly complex. However, once a federal court takes jurisdiction over a matter involving both federal and non-federal issues, that court retains jurisdiction even after the federal issues are terminated (this is called "supplemental" or "pendent" jurisdiction).
You may never have to read the case, but you should know that an adversary proceeding CAN remain open after the chapter 11 case is closed.
I am happy to answer general questions about my practice areas on this website. . However as I'm sure you understand we do not have an attorney/client relationship. Therefore my suggestions do not constitute legal advice. I urge you to contact counsel in your jurisdiction from whom you feel you can obtain trusted information.
I know that I have seen this in the Chapter 7 context (an AP being open, but the case being closed). However, since closing a Chapter 11 requires an application for final decree that states the Court's involvement is no longer necessary, I would find it unlikely. But, obviously, there is disagreement here.
