Setting Deadline for Filing Proofs of Claim or Equity Security Interests in Chapter 9 and Chapter 11 Cases
(a) By Motion. A claims bar date may be requested and set by motion. The Court may enter an order setting the claims bar date without a hearing. The order must provide no less than 60 days' notice and conform to Local Form No. 3003-1 Order Setting Claims Bar Date. Service of the order must comply with FRBP 2002(a)(7).
(b) By Order Setting Hearing on Disclosure Statement. Unless a bar date has previously been set, a claims bar date order must conform to Local Form No. 3003-2 Order Setting Initial Hearing on Approval of Disclosure Statement. Service of the order must comply with FRBP 2002(b).
(c) Subchapter V Cases. In a case under Subchapter V of Chapter 11, unless otherwise ordered by the Court, a proof of claim is timely filed if it is filed:
(1) By a creditor, other than a governmental unit, not later than 70 days after the order for relief; or,
(2) By a governmental unit, not later than 180 days after the order for relief.
Notes 2022: New subpart (c) added to establish a claim deadline in Subchapter V cases that is within 70 days after the bankruptcy filing date (180 days for creditors that are governmental units). These time periods are consistent with claim deadlines in Chapter 13 cases and were previously established by General Order 20-2.
