February 19, 2016
As is customary, on Feb. 1, 2016, the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware amended the Local Rules of Bankruptcy Practice and Procedure. This year's amendments, however, are more substantive than in year's past. Particular attention should be paid to: 
  • Adoption of a new local rule governing combined hearings on approval of disclosure statements and confirmation of plans in liquidating Chapter 11 cases 
  • Revisions to electronic service rules 
  • The timing for submission of certificates of no objection to pending pleadings 
A more comprehensive memo on the revisions to the Local Rules can be viewed here.
