What's New
 Extension of Telephonic and Video Section 341 Meetings by the U.S. Trustee The following update was sent by email to all registered attorney and trustee users' email addresses: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the U.S. Trustee has extended the time period for telephonic or video Section 341 meetings further until 60 days after the national state of emergency has ended. As this date is unknown, the Court has made modifications to ECF to include a location code for Section 341 meetings labeled "Telephonic or Video 341 Meeting." The docket and notices will reflect that information, and although the allowed space is limited, the notices will also include a note to refer to the Courtís website. When filing continuances for 341s, please be sure to select the new location code from the menu. Also, please keep in mind that notices that have already been sent for future dates will not include the new code. We ask debtorsí counsel to continue to ensure their clients are advised of all 341-related procedures so that this process can continue to go smoothly for all parties. Thank you.
