BANKRUPTCY PROCEDURE UPDATE:
NEW RULE ON PROOF OF CLAIM FILINGS
Query: ARE YOU “PAPER FILING” YOUR PROOFS OF CLAIM?
(hint: Not Anymore!)
Effective December 1, 2008, mandatory electronic filing will apply to creditors who file, on the average, two or more proofs of claim per week. This new rule is called General Procedure Order 2008-5.
In addition, creditors are required to complete the Court’s registration form, obtain a procedure manual from the Court and be assigned an electronic login, in that order.
