JAD PROCEDURES INFORMATION

This page provides information referenced in Judge Deller’s Case Management Order that is to became part of his new procedures effective January 1, 2021. This information will change from time to time as the procedures are implemented.

(1)      STIPULATED ORDERS MODIFYING PLANS:  The new procedures (at Paragraph 11 of the Order) urge the use of Stipulated Orders Modifying Plans previously confirmed on a final basis. Debtor(s) Counsel is to draft the proposed Order (JAD FORM 023) and submit it to the Trustee for review. The email address for the proposed modifications  is: JADProcedures@chapter13trusteewdpa.com.

PLEASE NOTE:  THE STIPULATED ORDER IS INTENDED TO MODIFY A PLAN PREVIOUSLY CONFIRMED ON A FINAL BASIS.  IT IS APPROPRIATE FOR MODIFICATIONS THAT DO NOT ADVERSELY AFFECT CREDITORS OR TO WHICH AFFECTED CREDITORS HAVE AGREED OR BECOME BOUND AS A RESULT OF A COURT ORDER.

(2)      AMENDED PLANS OR PROPOSED CURES OF PLANS IN DEFAULT (filed in lieu of proposing a STIPULATED ORDER):  The new procedures (at Para 11 (with respect to the Notice of Proposal to Cure Plan Defaults) and Para 12 (with respect to formal plan amendment and modification in lieu of stipulated orders)) require Debtor(s) Counsel to select an initial conciliation date to consider the proposal / modifications. In other words, the COURT WILL NO LONGER SCHEDULE A CONCILIATION DATE FOR THE AMENDED PLAN OR PROPOSED CURE OF PLAN DEFAULTS for Judge Deller cases. Instead, under Judge Deller’s new procedures, Debtor(s) Counsel’s MUST pick the date and time for the conciliation and insert it into the Notice.  Debtor’s counsel MUST then file and serve the notice and proposed cure/modification.  Debtor’s counsel MUST indicate in the ECF Docket the date and time of the scheduled conciliation). **
