Public Notice

The United States Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California has drafted revisions to the Court’s Local Bankruptcy Rules (LBRs) and is now seeking public comment.

Drafts of the LBR revisions listed below are available on the Local Bankruptcy Rules web page of the Court’s website www.cacb.uscourts.gov.

LBR LBR Title Type of Amendment
LBR 2002-2 Notice To And Service Upon The United States Or Federal Agencies To reduce the list of documents to be served on the United States Trustee via U.S. Mail.
LBR 2015-2 Periodic Reporting Requirements In Chapter 11 Cases Other Than Small Business Cases And Subchapter V Cases To require scanned “holographic” signatures to be attached to the new Monthly Operating Reports (MORs) and Post-Confirmation Reports, rather than included within those forms, preserving the forms’ data-enabled functions; and to change the filing MOR deadline from the 15th of the month to the 21st.
LBR 2015-3 Preconfirmation Requirements For Subchapter V Debtors, Debtors In Possession, and Trustees To set a deadline of 14 days in Subchapter V cases (chapter 11) before any proposed plan is due for the Trustee to file a notice of anticipated fees.

Comments concerning the proposed new Local Bankruptcy Rules should be emailed to bkcomments@cacb.uscourts.gov and include the name, email address, and telephone number of the person submitting the comment. All comments must be submitted by November 24, 2021.
