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. A sad end to a prolific gadfly. Indiana has suffered a great loss in the journalistic realm.

  2. Good riddance to this dangerous activist judge

  3. What is the one thing the Hoosier legal status quo hates more than a whistleblower? A lawyer whistleblower taking on the system man to man. That must never be rewarded, must always, always, always be punished, lest the whole rotten tree be felled.

  4. I want to post this to keep this tread alive and hope more of David's former clients might come forward. In my case, this coward of a man represented me from June 2014 for a couple of months before I fired him. I knew something was wrong when he blatantly lied about what he had advised me in my contentious and unfortunate divorce trial. His impact on the proceedings cast a very long shadow and continues to impact me after a lengthy 19 month divorce. I would join a class action suit.

  5. The dispute in LB Indiana regarding lake front property rights is typical of most beach communities along our Great Lakes. Simply put, communication to non owners when visiting the lakefront would be beneficial. The Great Lakes are designated navigational waters (including shorelines). The high-water mark signifies the area one is able to navigate. This means you can walk, run, skip, etc. along the shores. You can't however loiter, camp, sunbath in front of someones property. Informational signs may be helpful to owners and visitors. Our Great Lakes are a treasure that should be enjoyed by all. PS We should all be concerned that the Long Beach, Indiana community is on septic systems.
