Local Rule 9014-2

Consent To Bankruptcy Court Authority

In a contested matter before the Court, in addition to requirements of FRBP 9013 and 9014, the initial motion, objection or other document filed by any party must contain a statement whether the Court has authority to enter final orders in the contested matter. If no such statement is included, the filing will be deemed the party’s consent to the authority of the Court to enter final orders.


Notes 2018:  The text from former LR 9014-2 Hearings on Contested Matters has been moved to new LR 9014-3.  The new text in LR 9014-2 addresses the jurisdictional issues created by the holding in Stern v. Marshall, 564 U.S. 2, 131 S.Ct. 2594, 180 L. Ed. 2d 475 (2011), as clarified by Wellness International Network Ltd. v. Sharif, 575 U.S. ___ , 135 S.Ct. 1932, 191 L. Ed. 2d 911 (2015), related to contested matters.
