Attorney Noticing of Hearings will begin June 9th

The Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Florida will transition to
attorney noticing of hearings on June 9, 2014. Under this new process,
movant's attorneys will be directed in a text only docket entry to prepare,
serve and docket notices of hearing within three days. The specific details
on how this process will work is included in a training module which can be
viewed using the following link
http://pacer.flmb.uscourts.gov/atyntc/NoticingMattersforHearingbytheAttorney-CC.swf

Hearings that are not properly noticed as directed will be canceled.
Therefore we strongly encourage you to view the learning module and share
it with your staff.

Monitoring activity emails received from the Court's CM/ECF system will be
imperative to ensure compliance with noticing directions. As an electronic
filer, it is your responsibility to make sure your CM/ECF account is
updated with all the email addresses to which CM/ECF activity emails should
be sent.

Attached is also a sample Notice of Hearing that should be used when
preparing notices of hearing. This form is also posted on the Court's
Website.
