The new times will be:

9:15 a.m. Trustee motions
9:30 a.m. Original motions
10:00 a.m. Set matters and adversary return dates
10:30 a.m. Confirmations

Motions for April 7, 2020, and thereafter must be noticed for presentment accordingly. A motion noticed for the incorrect time will be continued to the next date at the correct time.

Noticing Motions for Set Matter Time
If a case or adversary proceeding is already on the set matter call for a particular day, a motion may be noticed for the set matter time on that day to be heard with the set matter. The motion need not be noticed for the original motion time.

Rulings in Chambers
When appropriate, Judge Goldgar will rule on original Chicago motions in chambers in advance, and orders will be entered on those motions. If a motion has been ruled on in chambers, the case will NOT be called unless a party asks the Courtroom Deputy before the motion call begins to call the case. Rulings in chambers will be posted on the “court calendar” portion of Judge Goldgar’s web site.

Notes: If you will be setting more than ten (10) adversary status hearing dates on a bankruptcy matter, please contact the Judge's chambers for the day and time of the hearing.
