Social Security disability cases pose many challenges. In practice, federal court review of Social Security agency decisions differs widely from district to district and from circuit to circuit. This pocket guide is a primer for judges deciding Social Security disability appeals at the district court level. It addresses issues that regularly arise in these appeals and highlights relevant provisions in the U.S. Code, the Code of Federal Regulations, and the Federal Register.
Section 923 of the Bankruptcy Code requires notice of (1) the commencement of the case, (2) an order for relief, and (3) any dismissal of the case. Section 923 further provides that such notice shall be given by publication “at least once a week for three successive weeks in at least one newspaper of general circulation within the district in which the case is commenced, and in such other newspaper having general circulation among bond dealers and holders as the court designates.”
This section includes the “Notice of the Commencement of the Case” from a variety of cases. That notice generally also includes the notice of the automatic stay and notice of the time for filing objections to the petition. It also may include notice and procedure related to other matters, such as the filing of proofs of claim and motion and hearing procedures.
This page also includes documents related to the required publication of notices and the use of websites for noticing purposes.
Notice and Websites is one of several Chapter 9 Online Repository categories.
