EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY: For hearings before Judge Trust while Eastern District of New York Administrative Order No.2020-05 re: Restrictions on Visitors to Courthouses remains in effect, and in order to protect the health and safety of the public, Judge Trust is adopting the following supplemental procedures in all matters. Please refrain from contacting the Court during this time period unless you have a matter that requires immediate attention.

Adjournments:

Unless you are notified otherwise by email, all matters on Judge Trust’s March 18, 2020 calendar are adjourned to April 8, 2020 at the same time as they are scheduled on March 18.

Unless you are notified otherwise by email, all matters on Judge Trust’s March 19, 2020 10:30 am and 11:30 am calendar are adjourned to April 16, 2020 at the same time as they are scheduled on March 19.

Requests for adjournments on consent on all other matters are encouraged.  Requests by attorneys, represented parties, and pro se parties may be made by contacting the Courtroom Deputy by email at: ast_hearings@nyeb.uscourts.gov at least 24 hours in advance of the scheduled hearing.  The Courtroom Deputy will respond by email, providing available dates and times and any other instructions.

Telephonic hearings:

All hearings which are not adjourned, including those on March 17, 2020, will be conducted telephonically, unless you are notified otherwise by the Courtroom Deputy.  For a dial in number and any questions about telephonic appearances, contact the Courtroom Deputy by email at: ast_hearings@nyeb.uscourts.gov at least 24 hours in advance of the scheduled hearing.  The Courtroom Deputy will respond by email, providing a dial in number and instructions.

Unopposed motions:

EDNY LBR Rule 9006-1 TIME FOR SERVICE AND FILING OF MOTIONS AND ANSWERING PAPERS  requires, inter alia, that “(ii) any answering papers shall be served so as to be received at least 7 days before the hearing date... Untimely papers may not be considered by the Court.”

Motions on Judge Trust’s calendars which are not opposed as required by EDNY LBR 9006-1 shall be deemed unopposed motions, including motions by the Chapter 13 Trustee to dismiss cases and motions for relief from stay, and may be granted by the Court without the need for an appearance, provided that the moving party files with the Court a Certificate of No Objection at least 3 business days prior to the scheduled hearing date. The Certificate of No Objection shall include the date of the filing and service of the motion, the deadline for filing an objection thereto, and a representation that (i) the motion was filed and served in a timely fashion, (ii) no objection has been filed or served on the movant, (iii) there is no objection, responsive pleading or request for a hearing with respect to the motion on the docket, and (iv) movant is aware of no informal objection. Following receipt of the Certificate of No Objection, the Court may enter an order granting the motion without further pleading, hearing or request. In the event the Court determines a hearing is necessary, the hearing shall be scheduled for a date after April 24, 2020. A form of Certificate of No Objection which shall be utilized in these circumstances can be found on the Court’s website under Judge Trust’ tab, “Form Orders.”

All other procedures:

All of Judge Trust’s standard published procedures, including motions by presentment and requests for emergency hearings, shall otherwise remain in effect.
