Comment

     Subdivision (a) of this rule is derived from Former Local Bankruptcy Rule 9. Subdivision (b) of this rule is derived from former Standing Order M-99. The return date for a motion is obtained pursuant to Local Bankruptcy Rule 5070-1.

     This rule was amended in 2013 to require that all motions and related pleadings include the deadline for filing objections or other responsive papers in the caption. In addition, for all objections or other responsive papers, the CM/ECF docket number for the proceeding must be included in the caption.
