Rule 2002-1

Notices to Creditors

(a)  Motions and Applications.  It shall be the responsibility and duty of the movant or the applicant to give the required notice of the hearing set on the motion or application or of the bar date by which an objection is to be filed if a hearing is not required.

(b)  Discretion of the Court.  Notwithstanding the provisions of this Local Rule, the Court may order that a particular party is responsible for notice.

(c)  Forms of Notice.  Whenever a motion or application is filed which is required to be noticed or requires a hearing, the movant or applicant must provide the form of notice.

(d)  Service on Certain Interested Parties.  In all cases, if any notice is not required to serve on all parties on the Master Mailing List or the Official Service List, but instead is required to be served only on certain interested parties, the moving party or applicant is responsible for service.

(e)  Notice of Preferred Address.  An entity and a notice provider, including the Bankruptcy Noticing Center, may agree that when the notice provider is directed by the Court to give a notice to such entity, the notice provider shall do so in the manner agreed to and at the address or addresses the entity supplies. That address is conclusively presumed to be a proper address for the notice. The notice provider’s failure to use the supplied address does not invalidate any notice that is otherwise effective under applicable law. The filing of a notice of preferred address under 11 U.S.C. § 342(f) by an entity directly with the Bankruptcy Noticing Center will constitute the filing of such a notice with the Court. Registration with the National Creditor Registration Service must be accomplished through the Bankruptcy Noticing Center that provides noticing services for the Bankruptcy Court. Forms and registration information is available at

(f)  Certificate of Service.  Service shall be evidenced by either a separate certificate of service or appended to the motion. If service is required to be made on the entire Master Mailing List or Official Service List, the most current version of the list must be attached as an exhibit to the certificate of service.


Notes 2018:  Under LR 9076-1, service through the Electronic Court Filing (ECF) system is proper service for documents governed by FRCP 5(b)(3), FRBP 7005, FRBP 9014(b), and FRBP 9022.
