PUBLIC NOTICE

Regarding Changes to Federal Court Miscellaneous Fee Schedule

Effective December 1, 2014

This revised Fee Table is effective December 1, 2014.  The Judicial Conference of the United States approved the following changes to the federal court miscellaneous fee schedules that relate to bankruptcy courts:

• New $25 fee, per affected case, for the filing of a motion to redact previously filed documents in a bankruptcy case.  

• Additionally, the Judicial Conference endorsed an exception to the reopening fee for a closed bankruptcy case to clarify that the reopening fee does not apply if redaction is the only purpose for reopening the case.  

• Increase in the direct appeal or direct cross appeal from $157 to $207 when such an appeal is accepted by a court of appeals.
