SERVICE OF PROCESS
Service is the responsibility of the plaintiff's attorney, or the plaintiff if the plaintiff is self-represented, and must be affected in accordance with Bankruptcy Rule 7004. Upon completion of service, the plaintiff's attorney, or the plaintiff if the plaintiff is self-represented, shall execute and file a certificate of service showing compliance with Bankruptcy Rule 7004, and serve a copy of the certificate to the defendant(s).
Advisory Committee Notes
No changes were made to this Local Rule in the 2023 revision cycle.
The amended rule includes only stylistic changes, clarifying that the rule similarly applies to self-represented parties. The official form for a certificate of service is included with the summons as the second page; the rule’s prior reference to the “back of the original Summons” has been deleted as current practice generally involves the certificate being printed as a separate page and not on the back of the summons as was done in the past.
