The United States Bankruptcy Court, Southern District of Indiana Chief Bankruptcy Judge Anthony J. Metz III signed an order Tuesday changing the maximum fee allowable under Local Rule B-2016-1(b).

The rule establishes the procedure pursuant to which counsel for a Chapter 13 debtor need not comply with the fee application process of Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure 2016, Compensation for Services Rendered and Reimbursement of Expenses. For all cases filed on or after June 1, the maximum fee allowable under the local rule is $4,000.

The order supersedes General Order 10-0005, which had previously set the maximum fee.
