Interim Rule 5012. Communication and Cooperation with Foreign Courts and Foreign Representations

Except for communications for scheduling and administrative purposes, the court in any case commenced by a foreign representative shall give at least 20 days’ notice of its intent to communicate with a foreign court or a foreign representative. The notice shall identify the subject of the anticipated communication and shall be given in the manner provided by Rule 2002(q). Any entity that wishes to participate in the communication shall notify the court of its intention not later than 5 days before the scheduled communication.

NOTE: This rule was among the Interim Rules adopted in connection with the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005. Because this rule remains under study, it was not among the Interim Rules incorporated into the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure on December 1, 2008. It remains an Interim Local Rule of this court.
