Local Rules Amendments for comment

Wednesday, November 16, 2016

The Court, having considered the upcoming amendments to the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure scheduled for December 1, 2016, implements changes to the Local Bankruptcy Rules (LBR). LBR 2002-2(d) is modified to delete the reference to electronic service regarding the three additional days allowed pursuant to FRBP 9006(f). LBR 7012-2 is deleted since it is duplicative of amended FRBP 7012. The remaining LBR 7012 rules will be renumbered. These revisions are identified in General Order 188.

The period for comment is from now until November 30, 2016. Except as set forth in a further order of this Court, the effective date of this order shall be December 1, 2016. Comments concerning these amendments may be submitted by E-mail to [please include the name, firm name (if any), E-mail address, and phone number of the person submitting the comment] or by mail to the Clerk of Court at 325 West F Street, San Diego, California 92101-6991. Please note on the envelope “LBR updates”.
