Major changes coming in bankruptcy court Oct. 1

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Indiana is reminding practitioners that some amendments to local rules taking effect next month “may significantly impact” bankruptcy attorney practices.

Beginning Oct. 1, the court is shifting responsibility for distribution of most orders to the prevailing parties. The order will indicate what party should make the distribution and file a certificate of service.

Clerk Kevin P. Dempsey encourages attorneys to become familiar with the requirements that the movant distribute notice of certain motions, such as motions for turnover, motions to sell, and motions to settle/compromise. Sample forms, some of which combine the motion with the notice, are scheduled to be available Wednesday on the court’s website.

Also, the debtors’ bar will be required to distribute Chapter 13 plans after the original and the first and second amended plans, as well as to distribute any motion to modify a plan brought by the debtor.

Dempsey’s reminder is available on the court’s website.  Until the local rule amendments are posted Oct. 1, attorneys may read General Order 12-003 to view what changes will be in effect.

  1. Hail to our Constitutional Law Expert in the Executive Office! “What you’re not paying attention to is the fact that I just took an action to change the law,” Obama said.

  2. What is this, the Ind Supreme Court thinking that there is a separation of powers and limited enumerated powers as delegated by a dusty old document? Such eighteen century thinking, so rare and unwanted by the elites in this modern age. Dictate to us, dictate over us, the massess are chanting! George Soros agrees. Time to change with times Ind Supreme Court, says all President Snows. Rule by executive decree is the new black.

  3. I made the same argument before a commission of the Indiana Supreme Court and then to the fedeal district and federal appellate courts. Fell flat. So very glad to read that some judges still beleive that evidentiary foundations matter.

  4. KUDOS to the Indiana Supreme Court for realizing that some bureacracies need to go to the stake. Recall what RWR said: "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!" NOW ... what next to this rare and inspiring chopping block? Well, the Commission on Gender and Race (but not religion!?!) is way overdue. And some other Board's could be cut with a positive for State and the reputation of the Indiana judiciary.

  5. During a visit where an informant with police wears audio and video, does the video necessary have to show hand to hand transaction of money and narcotics?
