The Delaware Bankruptcy Court has announced changes to its local rules effective February 1, 2019. For chapter 11 practitioners, the most noteworthy changes are to certain procedures applicable in main case motion practice and adversary proceedings, including:
Bankruptcy Case Motion Practice:
Also of note:
Plan Supplements: must be filed at least 7 days prior to the earlier of the balloting deadline, or the deadline to object to confirmation of the proposed plan (unless otherwise ordered by the Court). Del. Bankr. L.R. 3016-2 and 3017-2; and
Retention of Professionals: rather than the "adequate notice time" formerly required, 21 days is now the required minimum notice period for the hearing on retention applications. Del. Bankr. L.R. 2014-1(b).
