Rule 1071-1

Divisions - Bankruptcy Court

(a) Filing with Clerk. Petitions initiating cases under Title 11 shall be filed with the Clerk of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Arizona.

(b) Phoenix Division. Maricopa, Apache, Navajo, Coconino, Gila and Yavapai county cases should be filed with, and will be maintained by, the clerk's office in the Phoenix Division.

(c) Tucson Division. Pima, Cochise, Santa Cruz, Graham, Pinal and Greenlee county cases should be filed with, and will be maintained by, the clerk's office in the Tucson Division.

(d) Yuma Division. Yuma, La Paz and Mohave county cases should be filed with, and will be maintained by, the clerk's office in the Yuma Division.


Committee Notes 2007: The only change to this rule is to require Gila County cases to be filed in the Phoenix Division rather than the Tucson Division, incorporating that change made by General Order No. 71.
