Certificates of No Objection.  If a motion or application has been filed, appropriate notice has been served, and no objection, responsive pleading, or request for a hearing respecting the motion or application has been filed or received within twenty-four (24) hours after the expiration of the time to file an objection, counsel for the movant may file a certificate of no objection (“CNO”). A copy of the CNO must be emailed to jmm_hearings@nyeb.uscourts.gov

The CNO must include the date of the filing and service of the motion or application, the deadline for filing an objection thereto, and a representation that (i) the motion or application was filed and served timely, (ii) no objection has been filed or received by the movant, (iii) there is no objection, responsive pleading or request for a hearing respecting to the motion or application on the docket, and (iv) movant is aware of an informal objection.

Upon receipt of the CNO, the Court may enter the order granting the motion or application without further pleading or hearing; provided the form of order was served with the motion or application and the order is uploaded to CM/ECF E-Orders.  Once the order is entered, the hearing scheduled on the motion or application shall be cancelled without further notice.  If the order is not entered by 3:30 p.m. on the business day prior to the scheduled hearing date, the Court will hold a telephonic hearing as scheduled.  Please note, the Court will not cancel a hearing, notwithstanding a timely filed CNO if:  the relief affects an individual that is not represented by counsel, the motion includes a request for relief from the automatic stay, or a hearing is required under the Bankruptcy Code or Bankruptcy Rules.

Deadline to oppose Chapter 13 Trustee’s Motion to Dismiss and to Submit Documents to the Chapter 13 Trustee.  All opposition papers must be filed and transmitted so as to be received by the Chapter 13 Trustee at least 72 hours in advance of the scheduled hearing.  Where the motion to dismiss is based upon failure to provide documentation to the Chapter 13 Trustee as required by E.D.N.Y. LBR 2003-1, or as requested at the 341 meeting, such documents must also be transmitted so as to be received by the Chapter 13 Trustee at least 72 hours in advance of the scheduled hearing.

Documents filed on the docket or transmitted to the Chapter 13 Trustee less than 72 hours before a hearing will not be considered at such hearing.  Documents filed on the docket or transmitted to the Chapter 13 Trustee less than 72 hours before the hearing on the Chapter 13 Trustee’s motion to dismiss will not be grounds to deny or adjourn the motion unless a written request for an extension of time to oppose the motion is granted by the court before the expiration of the deadline.  Any request for such extension must be filed on the docket, emailed to the Judge’s chambers, and served on the Chapter 13 Trustee.

Pro Bono Attorneys.  The Court appreciates the efforts of attorneys who are representing clients on a pro bono basis and invites them to contact chambers if they would like their matters to be called at the beginning of the calendar. Chambers will make every reasonable effort to accommodate such requests.
