In addition to the changes to the Local Rules that became effective on December 1, 2016, the previous Local Rules Committee at the same time proposed changes to other Local Rules. When the previous changes to the Local Rules were circulated for public comment in November 2016, the Court indicated that the Judges were currently considering revisions to Local Rule 3015-2 and would circulate those changes for public comment at a later date.
The Judges have completed their revisions to SC LBR 3015-2 and now request comments on the new proposed Rule, available here. The purpose of the revisions to SC LBR 3015-2 are to bring the Local Rule in compliance with Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure 2002(a)(5) and (b), which require notice and service on all parties of any pre-confirmation modification to a chapter 13 plan, and Federal Rule of Bankruptcy Procedure 3015(g), which requires at least 21 days’ notice and service on all adversely affected parties of any post-confirmation modifications.
Please submit any comments on or before February 24, 2017, to firstname.lastname@example.org. While revised SC LBR 3015-2 may become effective on March 1, 2017, all comments received by February 24 will be considered.
