June 28 feedback -- A message from Judge Zurzolo about amendments to the Local Bankruptcy Rules


The Local Bankruptcy Rules (LBR) apply in every case in our district, unless a particular judge has an amended procedure that modifies or replaces application of that Local Rule. Each year the court edits the LBR to update procedures that are pertinent. Generally. this means adding or changing language within a particular Local Rule, or adding a brand new rule. Periodically, the court reviews all LBR to determine if an entire rule or a portion of a rule can be eliminated. 

This is your chance to provide feedback to the court on any LBR that you think can be eliminated entirely, or a particular provision in a Local Rule. When providing feedback, please indicate which entire LBR or portion of a Local Rule you think should be eliminated and give a detailed explanation of why that rule/portion is no longer needed. 

Please send your feedback by Friday, June 28, 2024, to Chambers_VZurzolo@cacb.uscourts.gov.
