PLEASE SEE KANE COUNTY ORIGINAL MOTION/ADVERSARY SCHEDULE FOR DATES JUDGE NOT SITTING
|Motions Granted Without a Hearing||Routine motions (as defined in Local Rule 9013-9) and other motions to which no objection is expected may be listed as “Will Be Granted Without a Hearing” on the call sheet for the hearing date.
A. Effect of listing as “Will Be Granted Without a Hearing”:
B. How to check whether a motion “Will Be Granted Without a Hearing”:
|Courtesy Copies of Motions (copies to be delivered to chambers)||None requested.|
|Motions for Relief from Automatic Stay||All motions for relief from the automatic stay must be accompanied by a Required Statement to Accompany All Motions for Relief From Stay, as required in Local Rule 4001-1.|
|Service of Motions||
For all contested matters (as defined in Bankruptcy Rule 9014), the motion or request must be served in compliance with Rule 7004. Corporations must be served as required under Rule 7004(b)(3) on an officer, managing or general agent, or on any agent authorized by appointment or by law to receive service of process. Service of a corporation at a P.O. Box to which payments are sent is not sufficient under Rule 7004(b)(3).
|Draft Orders to Follow||When a motion has been heard by the court and the party seeking relief is to present a draft order after the hearing, the motion may be denied if the order is not received in Judge Doyle’s chambers within fourteen (14) calendar days of the hearing on the motion.|
|Motions for Approval of Professional Fees and Expenses||
|Objections to Claims||An objection to claim must be presented in court in accordance with the rules for presenting motions and must identify the claimant and claim number. A copy of the proof of claim must be attached to the objection. Notice to the claimant must be served on the person who signed the claim form at the address specified on the claim form.|
|Objections to Exemptions||An objection to an exemption claimed by a debtor must be presented in court in accordance with the rules for presenting motions, with a copy of the schedule that lists the claimed exemption attached to the objection.|
At the first status on adversary proceedings, the court generally requires the parties to hold a Rule 26(f) conference and file a Rule 26(f) report with proposed discovery deadlines. At the second status, the court generally sets discovery deadlines, and schedules a status hearing after the discovery cut-off. At the status hearing after discovery has closed, the court generally sets a date (often within one month) for preparation of a Pretrial Statement (example on the court’s web site at Trial Preparation/Final Pretrial Order [Short Form]), and a trial date (generally within two months).
|Trial Procedures||Each party should bring enough pre-marked copies of each exhibit to provide a copy to the court, opposing counsel and witnesses.|
