Practice Tips for Adversary Proceedings

  • The bankruptcy judges rely on their calendar clerks to administer all adversary proceedings. If you have specific questions about an adversary proceeding, call the judge’s calendar clerk.
  • Judges may have different procedures for handling issues such as motions for default judgment or other matters. Again, call the calendar clerk with specific questions.
  • The short list of events on the adversary proceeding menu shows only frequently filed events or events unique to adversary proceedings, such as a motion for summary judgment. All of the events on the main bankruptcy event menu may be used in adversary proceedings, if appropriate.
  • Adversary proceedings may move faster, with shorter deadlines between events and responses, than other civil proceedings. Watch the deadlines carefully. Feel free to contact the judge's calendar clerks if you have any questions.
