All matters must be scheduled in accordance with the foregoing. Matters scheduled for the wrong hearing day, the wrong hearing time or on dates where the judge is not sitting will be, without prior notice to the parties, stricken from the court’s calendar or rescheduled by the court.  Parties wishing to have the court consider the request made in a matter for which the hearing has been so stricken must re-notice the matter for an appropriate hearing date and file on the docket of the case in question proof of the same.
 
When matters for the same case occur at multiple times on the same date, the court will, without prior notice to the parties, reschedule all earlier matters be heard alongside the latest matter on that date in the same case.  Matters may also be handled in chambers according to the procedures set forth under Motions Granted in Chambers.
 
Hearings are summary in nature unless otherwise ordered by the court.  Arguments in summary hearings are limited to five (5) minutes per party.  Evidence is not taken in summary hearings absent prior approval.  Should the parties anticipate the need to present argument in excess of five (5) minutes or to present evidence, such parties must either contact the court in advance of the hearing to schedule a special hearing date and/or time or request the same when present before the court a hearing on the matter.
 
If a party seeking relief from the court fails to appear at a scheduled hearing, the matter may be, without prior notice to the parties, denied for want of prosecution, continued for later hearing or ruled on by the court in the party’s absence.  Should a party opposing relief sought fail to appear at a scheduled hearing, without prior notice to the parties, the opposition may be overruled for want of prosecution or the matter may be continued for later hearing or ruled on by the court in the party’s absence.
 
Notes:
If you will be setting more than ten (10) adversary status hearings in a bankruptcy case or related cases, please contact chambers for one date and time for all hearings.
