Rule 2002-1 Notice to Creditors and Other Interested Parties.

(a)     Passive Notice.  A notice served under F.R.B.P. 2002(a)(3), (6), (7), or (8) must provide that if no objections are filed by the objection deadline, the court may grant the relief requested. No hearing date will be included in the notice unless a written request is filed.

(b)     Notice to Parties in Interest.  In a case filed under any chapter, a proponent must give notice to all parties in interest as required under F.R.B.P. 2002(a)(2), (4), (5), and (6). In a chapter 11 case, a proponent also must give the notice required by F.R.B.P. 2002(b) and (d).

(c)     Notices by a Chapter 7, 11, 12, or 13 Trustee.  Generally, the clerk will provide any notice required to be served on all parties in interest by a chapter 7, 11, 12, or 13 trustee.  Notwithstanding the above, a chapter 7 trustee pursuing assets is required to provide notice to all creditors and parties in interest, under these rules or under the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure, of the following:

          (1)    a trustee’s application for compensation;

          (2)    an attorney for trustee’s application for compensation;

          (3)    any notice of sale; and

          (4)    notice of a trustee’s final report, if the net proceeds realized exceed $1,500.00.

(d)     Notice of § 341(a) Meeting.

          (1)     General Rule. The clerk must serve notice of a meeting under 11 U.S.C. § 341(a) on all parties in interest listed on the mailing matrix.

          (2)     Amended Mailing Matrix. The debtor must serve notice of a meeting under 11 U.S.C. § 341(a) on all parties in interest added to the mailing matrix after notice of the meeting has been served pursuant to L.B.R. 2002-1(d)(1).

          (3)     Notice of Rescheduled Meeting. If the meeting under 11 U.S.C. § 341(a) is rescheduled before the meeting is called to order, notice of the rescheduled meeting must be given to all parties in interest by the party requesting the rescheduled meeting.  When rescheduling is caused by inclement weather, Acts of God, sudden illness, or the debtor’s failure to file required documents, the clerk will provide notice of the rescheduled meeting.  However, in each case for a pro se debtor, the clerk must provide notice of the rescheduled meeting to all parties in interest.

          (4)     Chapter 13 cases. In a chapter 13 case, notice of the meeting under 11 U.S.C. § 341(a) must include instructions on filing a proof of claim under L.B.R. 3001-1.
