General Order 56-1

Wednesday, March 15, 2023

Public Notice

The United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Ohio has entered General Order 56-1.

General Order 56-1 provides, in brief and with certain exceptions, that the service of notices required by Rule 2002(a) may be limited to claimants and other specified entities in a chapter 7, chapter 12, or chapter 13 case once the relevant time periods outlined in the general order expire, automatically and without further order of the Court.

A notice of electronic filing (NEF) will be issued in each applicable case when those time periods have expired, indicating which creditors and other parties in interest still require service under the general order.

A new mailing list will additionally be made available in the Case Query in CM/ECF. In cases where limited notice outlined in General Order 56-1 is not in effect, the mailing list will output all creditors. In cases where limited notice applies, the same mailing list will output only claimants in the case. (Note that additional parties may need to be served even where limited notice applies, and it remains the responsibility of counsel to ensure proper service of all notices.) Additional information about the matrix will be located here when it’s made available.
