Judge Waites

Thu, 12/03/2020 - 2:53 pm

Judge Waites is undertaking a project over the next sixty days to designate historical opinions for placement on the U.S. Government Publishing Office’s United States Courts Opinions webpage, which provides a free searchable database of select opinions from Federal courts for the general public and is available here.

As part of this project, when Chambers designates a prior opinion for distribution to the U.S. Government Publishing Office, CM/ECF may send counsel a new electronic notice for the historic opinion. Therefore, counsel may be receiving electronic notices for opinions entered several months or years ago. Counsel may disregard these particular notices as there has been no modification to these previously entered orders. If you have any questions regarding these notices, please contact Andrew Powell at Andrew_Powell@scb.uscourts.gov.


Judge Duncan

Wed, 12/02/2020 - 4:13 pm

Due to the Local Rule changes effective December 1, 2020, Judge Duncan has made minor revisions to his Chambers Guidelines.  The changes are as follows:

1.  The section regarding chapter 13 attorney fee procedures has been simplified due to recent changes to the procedure for requesting supplemental fees and the Court's creation of new events.

2.  A section has been added entitled, "Supplement to Exhibits A and B to SC LBR 9013-4."  This section provides information regarding scheduling of applications for allowance of administrative claims or interests under section 503 and sets the response deadline for motions to reopen under section 350. This section also clarifies that the procedure and deadline for objecting to a chapter 13 plan and embedded motions remains the same in Judge Duncan cases.

3.  Some exhibits have been reorganized due to the removal of the form previously used to request supplemental fees for loss mitigation work in a chapter 13 case.
