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. So if I am reading it right, only if and when African American college students agree to receive checks labeling them as "Negroes" do they receive aid from the UNCF or the Quaker's Educational Fund? In other words, to borrow from the Indiana Appellate Court, "the [nonprofit] supposed to be [their] advocate, refers to [students] in a racially offensive manner. While there is no evidence that [the nonprofits] intended harm to [African American students], the harm was nonetheless inflicted. [Black students are] presented to [academia and future employers] in a racially offensive manner. For these reasons, [such] performance [is] deficient and also prejudice[ial]." Maybe even DEPLORABLE???

  5. ND2019, don't try to confuse the Left with facts. Their ideologies trump facts, trump due process, trump court rules, even trump federal statutes. I hold the proof if interested. Facts matter only to those who are not on an agenda-first mission.
