 Rule 2013 Reporting Requirements:

The Advisory Committee Notes to Rule 2013 indicate that the reporting requirements do not apply to chapter 12 or chapter 13 trustees. These reports include only chapter 7 and chapter 11 trustees and their professionals. Compensation paid to professionals employed by chapter 11 debtors-in-possession is not reported. Compensation paid to professionals employed by chapter 11 trustees is reported.

The Court has tried to ensure the accuracy of these reports. However, the data for these reports comes from the Electronic Case Filing (ECF) system. The Court has identified certain errors and omissions caused by the ECF system and how trustees and other ECF users docket their pleadings and papers. Steps have been taken to address errors that have been identified by the Court. In addition, professionals are listed by the name(s) used in the ECF docketing process. This may result in separate entries for lawyers within the same law firm, for auctioneers under a personal and/or trade name, and other professionals.

Additional information may be obtained by using the Professional Fees Applied For/Awarded report in CM/ECF.
