Rule 9028-1

ACTION IN ABSENCE OF ASSIGNED JUDGE

     In the absence of an assigned Judge, any other Judge who is available may act temporarily in the absent Judge's place. To obtain the assistance of an available Judge, the parties shall communicate first with the chambers staff of the assigned Judge and, if chambers staff is unavailable, then with the Clerk.

Comment

     This rule is derived from Former Local Bankruptcy Rule 6.

     This rule is intended to assure that the business of the Court will not be impeded by the absence of an assigned Judge.
