Comment

     Subdivision (a) of this rule is derived from Former Local Bankruptcy Rule 13(j) and is an adaptation of Civil Rule 6.3 of the Local District Rules. Subdivision (b) of this rule is derived from Former Local Bankruptcy Rule 33 and is an adaptation of Civil Rule 12 of the Former District Rules.

     This rule does not apply to motions made under Bankruptcy Rule3008 or 9024.

     Subdivision (a) of this rule was amended in 2004 to conform with the 2004 amendments to Local District Rule 6.3./p>

     Subdivision (a) of this rule was amended in 2009 to change the time periods from ten (10) to fourteen (14) days. The purpose of the amendment
was to conform the time periods in this rule to the 2009 time-related amendments to the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure. Throughout the Bankruptcy Rules, as well as the Local Bankruptcy Rules, most time periods that are shorter than thirty (30) days were changed so that the number of days is in multiples of seven (7), thereby reducing the likelihood that time periods will end on a Saturday or Sunday.
