Appeals, Motions for Leave to Appeal, and Motions for Withdrawal of Reference
Notices of appeal, motions for leave to appeal, and motions for withdrawal of reference should be filed in the bankruptcy court in the format being used by that court for the particular case involved.
Designation of Record
The designation of record should be filed in the bankruptcy court in the format being used by that court for the particular case involved. The bankruptcy court will transmit all designated items to the district court and the parties are not required to submit additional copies unless requested by the bankruptcy court.
Electronic documents in the bankruptcy case will be transmitted electronically from the bankruptcy court to the district court. If the bankruptcy case consists of paper documents, the bankruptcy court will convert the paper case documents to electronic format before transmitting to the district court. However, transcripts, bound materials, and exhibits in paper format will be transmitted by paper from the bankruptcy court to the district court.
Filings After the Case is Transmitted to District Court
Unless the case is exempt from electronic filing by order of the presiding judge, any filing made directly to the district court should be in electronic format and in accordance with this Court's electronic filing procedures.
Once a district court case using electronic filing has been opened, any documents which by federal or local rule are required to be filed in the bankruptcy court and then transmitted to the district court, are to be filed in both courts by the parties. The documents must be electronically filed in the district court and filed in the bankruptcy court in whatever format is being utilized for the bankruptcy case.
