Notice of Request for Public Comments

The Court is considering the attached amendments to its Local Rules. These amendments were drafted by the Rules Subcommittee of the Advisory Committee to the Bankruptcy Court. The Court extends its thanks and appreciation to the members of the committee for their thoughtful and efficient work on these amendments. The amendments are intended to conform our Local Rules to the amendments to the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure that will become effective on December 1, 2009. Those amendments are available at:

It is the Court’s intent to complete work on these Local Rules amendments so that they can become effective on December 1, 2009, the same time as the amendments to the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure.
