(a) Omission of Response Date on Summons. Failure of a party or attorney for a party to state the correct response time on a summons or notice of lawsuit and request for waiver of service of summons attached to a complaint, third-party complaint, or any other pleading that requires a summons shall constitute grounds for dismissal of the action without prejudice.

(b) Failure to Effectuate Service of Process. In accordance with Rule 4 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, the Bankruptcy Court may, with notice to the party on whose behalf service was required, dismiss the action without prejudice as to any defendant not served within 120 days after the filing of the complaint.

(c) Failure to Update Office Address and Number. The failure of counsel for a party or of a party appearing pro se to keep the Bankruptcy Clerk's office informed of any change in address or telephone number which causes a delay or otherwise adversely affects the management of the case shall constitute grounds either for dismissal of the action without prejudice or for entry of a default judgment.
