Rule 3003-1

REQUESTS FOR ORDERS ESTABLISHING DEADLINES FOR FILING CLAIMS IN CHAPTER 11 CASES – Amended [August 1, 2013]

     A request for an order establishing a deadline for filing proofs of claim in a chapter 11 case shall conform to the Procedural Guidelines for Filing Requests for Orders to Set the Last Date for Filing Proofs of Claim, which shall available on the Court’s website (http://www.nysb.uscourts.gov/sites/default/files/3003-1-guidelines.pdf).

Comment

     Procedures for requesting deadlines for filing claims, traditionally known as “bar dates,” were originally promulgated by General Order M-386.

     This rule was amended in 2013 to better refer to the procedures promulgated by General Orders M-386, amended by General Order M-453 and to state in the rule the link to the Court’s website where practitioners may access the governing procedures. These guidelines, which also may be obtained from the Clerk, may be further amended by the Court in the future after giving notice and opportunity for comment as is appropriate.
