    ANNOUNCEMENT

    Regarding Hearings Before the Hon. Christopher S. Sontchi

    (Effective for all hearings on and after December 17, 2021)

    Due to the recent surge in COVID-19 cases and uncertainty as to the impact of the Omicron variant, until further notice all hearings before Hon. Christopher S. Sontchi will be held entirely on Zoom and in-person attendance will not be permitted, notwithstanding Judge Sontchi’s chambers procedures to the contrary.  For the avoidance of doubt, all testimony will be via Zoom, including cross-examination and re-direct.

    Amended Rule 9036

    Effective December 1, 2021, the Director of the Administrative Office of the United States Courts has designated any entity that receives 100 or more paper bankruptcy notices in a single calendar month as a high-volume paper notice recipient pursuant to Fed. R. Bankr. P. 9036(b)(2)(B) (as amended effective December 1, 2021) (the “Rule”). The threshold number of paper notices that will cause a notice recipient to be designated as a high-volume paper notice recipient pursuant to the Rule will be reviewed annually and may be adjusted once a year, effective on December 1st of each year. Once the threshold paper notice amount is reached, the Bankruptcy Noticing Center (BNC) will notify the notice recipient that it must register for Electronic Bankruptcy Noticing (EBN) or that, if the recipient does not register within 45 days of the date of the notification, the BNC will establish an electronic address where the Director designates the recipient to receive its notices pursuant to the Rule.
