In order to incorporate the changes to procedures previously announced on the Court’s Chambers Bulletin, Judge Waites recently entered Operating Orders 18-05 and 18-06, which adopts revised chambers and LM/MM guidelines for the cases to which he is assigned. Both operating orders are available here.
In addition, the updated guidelines include two additional changes to note:
Statements of Dispute: The guidelines update the procedures on the filing of Joint Statements of Dispute and Separate Statements of Dispute, including an update to the Joint Statement form and the addition of a new form Statement of Dispute. In addition, for objections to chapter 13 plans, parties are to submit a joint statement of dispute upon the earlier of 30 days after the filing of the objection or 10 A.M. two business days before the scheduled confirmation hearing.
- Separate Guidelines on LM/MM: While incorporated into the Chambers Guidelines, the procedures on LM/MM are now separately stated for ease of reference pursuant to Operating Order 18-06.
