SELF-CALENDARING INSTRUCTIONS FOR JUDGE JULIA W. BRAND
The self-calendaring system is designed to allow both counsel and parties to schedule hearing dates for matters heard on regular notice, without having to contact the Courtroom Deputy to obtain a hearing date. Matters that do not require hearings may be filed in accordance with Local Bankruptcy Rule 9013-1(o)(1). All hearings will be held in Courtroom 1375 on the 13th Floor of the Edward R. Roybal Federal Building and Courthouse at 255 E. Temple Street, Los Angeles, California.
I. Matters that May be Self-Calendared.
The following matters may be self calendared provided that the time required for hearing such matters is 15 minutes or less. Matters requiring more than 15 minutes may not be self calendared. The court reserves the right to reschedule any self-calendared matter. Parties may select their own hearing dates if the matter to be heard is 15 minutes or less and falls within the one of the following categories:
II. Matters that May Not be Self-Calendared:
The following matters may not be self calendared.1
III. Matters Heard on Shortened Time that May be Self Calendared.
Although generally matters heard on shortened time may not be self calendared, (see section II.B. above), parties may self calendar the following motions to be heard on shortened time (minimum 14 days notice) without prior approval of the Court:
To self calendar any motion listed above on shortened time, the moving party must file and serve all moving papers on the debtor, the trustee, any creditor who may be affected by the relief requested and the creditor’s attorney, if any, by overnight mail, facsimile or personal service at least 14 days before the date scheduled for the hearing. A declaration regarding service must be filed at least 7 days before the date scheduled for hearing. If the declaration regarding service is not timely filed, the motion may be continued or summarily denied. Any opposition must be filed at least 7 days before the hearing. If the Court determines that a hearing is set using this procedure without meeting these requirements, the Court may, among other relief, dismiss the motion with prejudice.
