NOTICE REQUIRING COURT ATTENDANCE UNLESS ORDER GRANTING MOTION TO CONTINUE HAS BEEN ENTERED 

BANKRUPTCY PRACTITIONERS PLEASE TAKE NOTICE: Local Bankruptcy Rule 5071-1 governs the procedure for requesting a continuance of a matter scheduled for hearing.  Whether such motion is filed jointly or one-sided, absent the entry of an order approving such request prior to the scheduled hearing, counsel are required to appear at the scheduled hearing and failure to do so may result in the issuance of an order to show cause why sanctions should not be imposed.

To assist the Court with timely acting on such motions, it is strongly advised that counsel file any such motions as early as possible.  Click here to view notice.
