Delaware Bankruptcy Court’s Local Rules For 2015 Effective February 1st

The Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware’s Local Rules for 2015 went effective February 1, 2015.  A copy of the 2015 Local Rules can be found here and a redline of the 2015 Local Rules against the 2014 Local Rules can be found here.

Of particular note, the procedures for filing documents under seal have been altered.  Previously, counsel filed a blank cover sheet electronically, indicating a document to be filed under seal and then sent a hard-copy of the sealed document directly to chambers.  Under the new procedures, the proposed sealed documents must be filed on the CM/ECF system under a new option: “restricted documents.”  See Del. Bankr. L.R. 9018-1.  The requirement of filing a motion for leave to file documents under seal remains unchanged.
