BANKRUPTCY RULE 5071-1

CONTINUANCES

 

Motions for continuance of any bankruptcy matter, including in adversary proceedings, shall be filed as soon as the grounds for continuance are known. The court will grant a continuance only upon a showing of good cause.

If a continuance is granted, the moving party is responsible for noticing interested parties of the continuance and, if a continuance is granted within 24 hours of the scheduled bankruptcy matter or adversary proceeding, notice shall be by direct communication as well as electronic filing.  If one of the parties is pro se, the moving party shall provide notice of the continuance by direct communication if a continuance is granted within 48 hours of the scheduled hearing.   

All requests to continue a meeting of creditors under § 341 shall be directed to the United States Trustee or the trustee assigned to the case.
