2 Local Rule amendments posted for public comment

Wednesday, September 25, 2019

At its September 17 meeting the Local Rules Committee endorsed two rule amendments that have now been posted for public comment. The proposed amendments are to LBR 3002-1(e) and LBR 9045-1. The changes to 3002-1(e) would (1) revise the time period within which creditors added by amendment in chapter 7, 12, and 13 cases must file a proof of claim, and (2) remove the objection deadline for those claims. The amendment to 9045-1 would remove the requirement that counsel set a hearing on a routine agreed continuance motion.

Redline versions are available on the Local Rules page of the Court’s website. Counsel and interested members of the public are encouraged to review the proposals and comment by October 25, 2019. All comments will be considered.
