Voluminous Pleadings Requirements

Local Bankruptcy Rule 9013-1(E) – Paper Copy for Lengthy Filings Requiring Hearing:

Any party that files a paper in a contested matter or adversary proceeding that, together with any memoranda, attachments, affidavits, exhibits, or depositions referenced, exceeds fifty (50) pages, must supply to chambers a full paper copy thereof. The paper copy shall be supplied contemporaneously with filing in matters in which the filing party reasonably expects opposition, such as non-consent dispositive motions. Where a paper filed in an administrative case does not become a contested matter until another party files its opposition, the paper copy shall be supplied no fewer than seven (7) days before the scheduled hearing.
