Typical Monthly Schedule of Hearings
A typical monthly calendar may look like the attached schedule. However, the calendar is always subject to adjustment due to other judicial business, holidays, etc.
In January 2019, the bankruptcy court implemented the CHAP calendar system and the use of preapproved “preset” hearing dates and times. Typically, these are matters that require 28-day notice and generally will be available until 30 days before the hearing date. Click here for an overview and more detailed instructions.
Requests to Continue a Matter
Click here for detailed information about how a party may request that a future hearing, trial, or scheduling conference be continued. Under certain circumstances a motion may be continued without a motion, continuing a trial or evidentiary hearing requires obtaining a court order, either granting a motion or approving a stipulation. Motions and stipulations must recite specific reasons for rescheduling the matter and the length of the proposed continuance.
