Quick Note

Pursuant to Local Bankruptcy Rule 9010-5, the substitution of attorneys is governed by District Court Local Rule 83.3(g)(2) which states that attorney substitutions are to be approved by the court and signed by the party making the substitution, the attorney ceasing to act and the newly appointed attorney. Therefore, to facilitate the attorney substitution process and to comply with District Court Local Rule 83.3(g)(2), the court implemented the new form and order CSD 3011 - Substitution of Attorney and Order Thereon.
