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 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.


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.
