Notice of Information

This event is programmed in CM/ECF to automatically transmit statistical information to the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts pursuant to statutory mandates of Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005 (BAPCPA).  Please be sure this is the most appropriate event for the pleading you are filing.

This event should be used to file the following types of Information Notices:

  • Abandonment
  • Private Sale
  • Public sale
  • Public Auction
  • Settlement of Controversy
  • Sale and Abandonment
  • Other

NOTE 1: The Notice of Information event is used for docketing all information notices except a Settlement of Controversy which is a separate event.

NOTE 2: Because you will be prompted in this event to enter a hearing date, please determine this information prior to filing the Notice by accessing Hearing Dates - Judges Calendar under Chambers on our web site.  The hearing date must be at least 30 days from the date of filing; the objection date will default to 20 days from the date of filing.  If you are docketing a Notice of Private/Public Sale and a motion has been submitted in conjunction with the notice, please file the motion first and use the same hearing date in both events.

NOTE 3: See Local Mandatory Forms Information for Notice of Abandonment - Chapter 7, Information for Notice of Abandonment - Ch. 11, Information for Notice of Public Sale and Information for Notice of Private Sale posted on our site under Local Mandatory Forms.
