The Judge/Trustee Assignment program must be run after the case has been opened in CM/ECF. The process of randomly assigning the judge and trustee is described below.
NOTE: If several cases are filed the same day, it is suggested that you open all cases in CM/ECF prior to running the Judge/Trustee Assignment. The possibility of the system assigning the same trustee, meeting date and time are greater. This entry must always be made the same day a case is filed.
- Select Bankruptcy.
- Select Judge/Trustee Assignment.
The system will display the judge and trustee assigned to the case.
NOTE: Chapter 11 §341(a) meetings are docketed by the U.S. Trustee’s office. The Judge/Trustee Assignment assigns the Judge only.
