The Bankruptcy Court has traditionally served interested parties to a contested matter or adversary proceeding with paper copies of all orders. However, all documents, including orders, are now available electronically on the court's website. Thus, in certain circumstances, the court will soon begin serving parties with a Notice of Entry of Order rather than an actual copy of the order. The Notice of Entry of Order will identify the order, the date the order was entered and the document number of the order on the docket. Parties can access the actual text of the order through the Court's website at www.mnb.uscourts.gov.
The Notice of Entry of Order will be served through the court's noticing center. Due to increased time for processing and mailing from the noticing center, approximately four days may elapse between the date of entry of the order and parties' receipt of the notice. In cases of time-sensitivity, counsel and parties may monitor the court's website for entry of the order, after a hearing or deadline for objection.
