BLR 9013-2. Preparation of Proposed Orders.

(a) All proposed orders (including findings of fact and conclusions of law or other rulings orally announced by the Bankruptcy Judge and orders submitted following the call of a matter at a scheduled hearing as to which there is no opposition) shall: (1) be prepared in writing and signed by the attorney for the prevailing party, unless the Bankruptcy Court directs otherwise; (2) include the scheduled hearing date, if applicable; and (3) be submitted to the Bankruptcy Judge within seven days from the date of pronouncement or scheduled hearing, if applicable. A copy shall be provided to each party. An attorney's signature as preparer of a proposed order constitutes a certification that the contents of the proposed order accurately reflect the Bankruptcy Judge's oral ruling or the proceedings at the call of the matter, as applicable.

(b) Identification of Counsel and Parties to be Served. Every proposed order, including a consent order, shall be signed by each attorney or party preparing, submitting, or consenting to the proposed order and shall provide an identification of each attorney and the name of the represented party in accordance with BLR 5005-1(e). If the Bankruptcy Clerk is to serve the order, the order shall be accompanied by a distribution list containing the names and addresses of the attorneys and parties to be served.

(c) If a Bankruptcy Judge authorizes an attorney to submit a proposed order to chambers by electronic means, Rule 5005-7 applies to such submission and to the required signatures on the electronically filed document.
