7th Circuit, Bankruptcy Court seek comment on rule changes

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Indiana want to hear from attorneys about proposed rule changes.

The 7th Circuit looks to revise Circuit Rules 3, 10, 11, 22, 26.1, 28, 34, 45 and 46. Some of the changes deal with updating language to include electronic submissions or format or use of email.

Rule 34 seeks to extend the notice a clerk must receive in advance as to who will present oral argument from two days to five days.

Rule 45 on fees has been rewritten to make fees collected by the clerk in accordance with the Court of Appeals Miscellaneous Fee Schedule established by the Judicial Conference of the United States under 28 U.S.C. Section 1913.

Under Rule 46, attorneys who seek admission to the 7th Circuit will pay a $15 local fee plus a national fee based on the Miscellaneous Fee Schedule.

Comments must be received by Aug. 1. All of the proposed changes are available on the court’s website, as well as the email and street address to direct comments.

The Bankruptcy Court is accepting public comment concerning a proposed change to Local Rule B-2002-2, Notice of Opportunity to Object to Motions.

The change would amend the rule for clarification by changing Paragraph (a)(24) from “Applications to employ professionals nun pro tunc” to “Applications to employ professionals retroactively.” The amendment also would add additional explanatory commentary.

Comments must be received by July 2. The mailing address and email to direct comments to, as well as the proposed change, are available on the court’s website.

  1. He did not have an "unlicensed handgun" in his pocket. Firearms are not licensed in Indiana. He apparently possessed a handgun without a license to carry, but it's not the handgun that is licensed (or registered).

  2. Once again, Indiana's legislature proves how friendly it is to monopolies. This latest bill by Hershman demonstrates the lengths Indiana's representatives are willing to go to put big business's (especially utilities') interests above those of everyday working people. Maassal argues that if the technology (solar) is so good, it will be able to compete on its own. Too bad he doesn't feel the same way about the industries he represents. Instead, he wants to cut the small credit consumers get for using solar in order to "add a 'level of certainty'" to his industry. I haven't heard of or seen such a blatant money-grab by an industry since the days when our federal, state, and local governments were run by the railroad. Senator Hershman's constituents should remember this bill the next time he runs for office, and they should penalize him accordingly.

  3. From his recent appearance on WRTV to this story here, Frank is everywhere. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy, although he should stop using Eric Schnauffer for his 7th Circuit briefs. They're not THAT hard.

  4. They learn our language prior to coming here. My grandparents who came over on the boat, had to learn English and become familiarize with Americas customs and culture. They are in our land now, speak ENGLISH!!

  5. @ Rebecca D Fell, I am very sorry for your loss. I think it gives the family solace and a bit of closure to go to a road side memorial. Those that oppose them probably did not experience the loss of a child or a loved one.
