United States Bankruptcy Court
Instructions for Obtaining a Hearing Date – Chambers of Judge Zurzolo
(Revised March 2013)
Hearings of motions set on regular notice will ordinarily be held on Tuesdays or Thursdays. Hearings on motions set on an emergency or shortened notice basis may be set on other days, but ONLY after you comply with LBR 9075-1 and the court selects a date and time. There will be days or weeks where hearing dates are not available because the court is not in session or those dates are reserved for trials or final hearings.
You do not need to contact the court to select a hearing date. First, find the appropriate day and time from the chart below that matches your type of motion. Second, select an available date that allows you to meet notice and service requirements, put the date and time on the front page of your motion, and file the motion with the court. Available hearing dates are posted on the court’s website, www.cacb.uscourts.gov.:
If you need assistance to schedule a hearing date and time, call Ms. Johnson at (213) 894-5855.
