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.
