BLR 9013-2. Preparation of Proposed Orders.

(a) All proposed orders (including findings of fact and conclusions of law or other rulings verbally 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) must: (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 must 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 verbal 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, must be signed by each attorney or party preparing, submitting, or consenting to the proposed order and must 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 must be accompanied by a distribution list containing the names and addresses of the attorneys and parties to be served. If the proposed order seeks to have the Bankruptcy Clerk serve all parties in the case, the distribution list shall state “All parties on the Mailing Matrix.”

(c) Format Requirements of Proposed Electronic Orders. All proposed orders submitted electronically (E-Orders) must leave a four inch margin at the top of the first page to allow space for the signature of the Bankruptcy Judge and the date of the signature of the order. Additionally, the phrase “END OF DOCUMENT” must be placed after the end of the text of the proposed order. For further format and filing requirements of proposed electronic orders, see the official website of the Bankruptcy Court.
