PROPOSED FINDINGS OF FACT AND CONCLUSIONS OF LAW - Amended December 1, 2016
Before or after the announcement of its decision, the Court, on notice to all parties, may require one or more parties to submit proposed findings of fact and conclusions of law. Any party submitting proposed findings of fact and conclusions of law shall serve them on all other parties within the time fixed by the Court. The Court may also grant any party’s request to submit counter-findings and conclusions, which shall be served on all other parties within the time fixed by the Court.
This rule is derived from Former Local Bankruptcy Rule 18 and is an adaptation of Civil Rule 23 of the Former District Rules.
This rule was amended in 2016 to give the Court the power to affirmatively authorize the submission of counter-findings and conclusions. The previous version of this rule allowed the parties to submit counter-findings and conclusion by right, unless the Court ordered simultaneous submissions. The content of the record on appeal is no longer limited by this rule.
