Training Document re Federal and Local Bankruptcy Rule, Fee and Form Changes, Effective December 1, 2016

Monday, November 21, 2016

Please view the attached training document for information about the upcoming December 1, 2016 Federal and Local Bankruptcy Rule, Fee and Form changes.   Practitioners are encouraged to pay particular attention to Slide 24 regarding required changes to legal template documents containing Local Rule 1005-1(d) response time language and to ensure your form documents have been updated with the revised language.   These changes are mandated by amended FRBP 9006(f), which eliminates the three added days to act when service is made electronically.  The Court will be strictly enforcing this requirement.
