Updated Calendar Disposition List

We are excited to announce our updated Calendar Disposition List!

Besides the obvious formatting changes, you will find a box at the top right labeled ‘FILTER RESULTS’. This box will filter (not sort) the list by what’s typed in it. For example, if you type a case number (including the dash) in the box, you will see only the matters that are on the calendar for that case. Similarly, if you type a debtor attorney’s last name, you will only that attorney’s matters on the calendar. You will also notice that the matters load the first 50 on the calendar. You can use the drop-down menu at the top left of the list to load more, or all, matters, or you can use the page numbers at the bottom of the list to scroll the the hearings, page-by-page.

The data that displays has not changed; however, in the coming weeks you will notice that the debtor’s payment information will appear at the top of the trustee notes box. We will display that the debtor has made ‘x of y payments’, as well as the amount in arrears, if any.

If you have any questions about, issues with, or suggestions for the Calendar Disposition List, send an email to webadmin @ russotrustee.com

Communications from the Trustee’s Office

Please note that, from time to time, in addition to payment-related information, you may receive an electronic case-related communication from either the Trustee or the National Data Center (NDC).  These will be sent from email addresses ending with either @ndc.org or @russotrustee.com, and may include either attachments or links to documents.

NEW PROCEDURE REGARDING ORDERS TO BE SUBMITTED

Effective immediately: 

All proposed orders that are emailed directly to the Judge’s Chambers to resolve matters heard in court MUST be copied to orders @ russotrustee.com.

REMINDER REGARDING CONFIRMATION / MOTION ADJOURNMENTS

FOR CONFIRMATION HEARINGS AND MOTIONS:
Once an Adjournment Request is received and reviewed, a Determination of Adjournment Request will be docketed on CM/ECF.  This docket entry will indicate whether or not the hearing was adjourned.  If the request was granted, the new date and time will be docketed.  This may be different from the date requested on the Adjournment Request form.   If the request was denied, the reason for denial will be docketed.

IF A DETERMINATION OF ADJOURNMENT REQUEST IS NOT DOCKETED, YOU MUST APPEAR AT THE HEARING.

NOTICE TO THE BAR REGARDING 341 ADJOURNMENTS

Effective August 1, 2017 the Trustee’s office will no longer email notices to requesting attorneys when 341 adjournment requests are denied.

When a 341 adjournment request is received, the case will be reviewed to determine if an adjournment can be approved.

As is currently the practice, approved requests will be docketed on PACER with the new date and time, and will also appear on the Trustee’s Calendar Disposition List as Continued. 

DENIED REQUESTS WILL NO LONGER BE RETURNED BY EMAIL TO THE REQUESTING ATTORNEY.  If a notice is not received from PACER with the new date and time of the meeting, you must check the Trustee’s Calendar Disposition List to determine the status of your request.  If it has been denied, it will appear in the NOTES section, indicating the reason for denial.
