Comments requested for proposed Local Rules

Monday, April 8, 2019

The Court is requesting comments to the draft proposed Local Rules.  Please send any suggestion or comments to, or feel free to contact either of the judges directly.  The comment period will end May 15, 2019. Judge Callaway says this proposal is almost entirely a clean-up and integration of the current general orders into the local rules with elimination of some redundancies.  Minor changes thus far include: (1) fact summaries are to be filed in support of motions for relief from stay in all individual cases regardless of chapter and (2) negative notice motions don’t need to be accompanied by a proposed order.  The no-look chapter 13 attorneys fee provision will remain as an administrative order instead of becoming a local rule to avoid the need for Eleventh Circuit approval for any change.
