Bankruptcy court attempts to clarify order distribution

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Bankruptcy Clerk Kevin P. Dempsey of the Southern District of Indiana has issued a clarification on when orders should be distributed now that rules have shifted responsibility for distribution of most orders to the prevailing parties.

The clerk’s office has received numerous inquiries since the rule change Oct. 1. Dempsey writes that the office staff cannot offer guidance on order distribution since that could be considered legal advice. The Oct. 10 order directs attorneys to the Procedures Manual for guidance on generating a list of parties to receive notice.

Any questions or suggestions regarding the rule should be sent to
