Proposed amendment to LBR 3015-1(a)

Tuesday, July 9, 2019

On May 23, 2019, the Court posted a new form Order Granting Motion to Modify and Approving the Modified Plan to its website. At its June 25 meeting, the Local Rules Committee approved for public comment an amendment to D. Me. LBR 3015-1(a), the effect of which would be to make use of the Order Granting Motion to Modify and Approving the Modified Plan mandatory in appropriate circumstances. A redline version of the proposed rule is available on the Local Rules page of the Court’s website. Counsel and interested members of the public are encouraged to review BOTH the proposed amendment AND the form order, and comment on either by August 9, 2019. All comments will be considered.
