TWO LOCAL RULES AMENDED; TWO DELETED

Friday, June 15, 2018

Effective June 14, 2018, local bankruptcy rules 4001-1(g) and 9013-1(d)(1) have been amended, and local rules 7008-1 and 7012-1 have been deleted. Rules 4001-1(g) and 9013-1(d)(1) were amended to clarify that a consent motion for relief from stay that includes a request for relief from the co-debtor stay must include the consent of the co-debtor. Rules 7008-1 and 7012-1 have been removed in their entirety, as a result of changes made to the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure and Stern v. Marshall, 564 U.S. 462 (2011).
