The United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Indiana has adopted revisions to Local Rule B-7056-1, Motions for Summary Judgment. The change became effective Tuesday.
The existing paragraph of the rule is now designated as paragraph (a) and a new paragraph (b) has been added. It reads: “(b) A party opposing a summary judgment motion may file a surreply brief only if the movant cites new evidence in the reply or objects to the admissibility of the evidence cited in the non-movant’s response to the motion. The surreply must be filed within 7 days after the movant serves the reply and must be limited to the new evidence and objections.”
