As you may know, the Honorable Margaret H. Murphy retired yesterday, October 18, 2015, after 28 years of outstanding service to the United States Bankruptcy Court, Northern District of Georgia.
A new judge will fill this vacated position in the near future. At the time of that appointment, Judge Murphy's existing caseload will be transferred to the new judge immediately. In the interim period, Judge Murphy's caseload, as well as any newly assigned cases, will receive a temporary judge code designation of "A998." This code will appear on notices, orders, forms and other documents issued by the Court. When the new judge is in place, the A998 code will be replaced with that judge's name and initials. In the meantime, our website will include a chambers page for "Judge A998" with available hearing dates for these cases.
Accordingly, please adjust your computer systems, programs, forms, etc... so that Judge Murphy's name, initials, signature blocks and the like are no longer included on pleadings and orders submitted to this Court.
Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
M. Regina Thomas
