Printer-friendly versionPDF version

Local Rule 9021-1 gives guidance for preparation and submission of proposed orders:

1. L.R. 2091-1(a)  states that proposed orders are to be submitted as separate documents, not included with or made part of motions.

2. L.R. 2091-1(b) states that unless ordered otherwise, orders should be submitted by the prevailing party and objections to the order must be filed with 7 days from the date the proposed order is filed.

3. L.R. 2091-1(c) requires orders to be submitted in “...such form as the court requires”.  The court requires a 2 and 1/2 inch margin on the top of the first page of the order.

4. L.R. 2091-1(e)  instructs parties filing a proposed order shall attach a “Designation of Parties to be Served.”  The designation must be in conformity with Local Bankruptcy Form 9021-1.  This designation instructs the Bankruptcy Court Clerk’s Office of those who should receive a signed copy of the order.

NOTE:  When filing a proposed order for a bankruptcy case, filing users should use the “Pending Order Upload” category under the “Bankruptcy” menu.  When filing a proposed order for an adversary case, filing users should use the “Pending Order Upload” category under the “Adversary” menu.
