Requirement of Attorney Registration Number

Tuesday, February 13, 2001

Pursuant to Bankruptcy Rule 400(B) the U. S. Bankruptcy Court will require the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission identification number be included on all petitions, pleadings and other paper offered for filing. Clerk’s office employees will use this number to identify attorneys in our case management database. At present we use a combination of letters from the attorney’s first name and last names. This has caused some confusion when two attorneys have similar names. Using the Attorney identification number will improve the accuracy of our database. We need your cooperation.
This is effective immediately.
Thank you.
Wayne E. Nelson
Bankruptcy Clerk
