This guide on the use of distance participation (DP) technology to conduct bankruptcy hear­ings and trials provides an overview of general considerations, ranging from philo­sophical to practical, and then examines separately the use of the teleconferencing and videoconferencing.

This repository of materials was developed as a companion to the manual, Navigating Chapter 9 of the Bankruptcy Code, to provide courts with examples of case documents and other resource materials related to issues likely to arise in Chapter 9 cases.

October 24, 2017

This page includes a motion, objections thereto, related briefs, and an order/opinion regarding the applicability of Bankruptcy Rule 9019 to settlements in the Chapter 9 case. Rule 9019 provides, “[o]n motion by the trustee and after notice and a hearing, the court may approve a compromise or settlement.” This court determined that a Chapter 9 debtor does not need to seek approval of settlements reached during the Chapter 9 case.

This page includes documents related to the use of discovery and the Rule 2004 examination and production process. A Chapter 9 debtor is obligated to provide only limited financial and operational information with its petition.

Rule 2004 Examinations and Discovery is one of several Chapter 9 Online Repository categories.
