District Court Issues Standing Order 15-02 Governing Time to Effect Service Under Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(m)

On December 1, 2015, the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure were amended.  One of the amendments changed the deadline for a party to effect service of a civil complaint.  See Fed. Rule Civ. P. 4(m).  On December 15, 2015, the Chief Judge for the District of Kansas issued Standing Order No. 15-02 to clarify that in the District of Kansas "the 90-day time period for effecting service under Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(m) shall apply to all cases filed on or after December 1, 2015; and . . . this amendment to Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(m) shall not apply to cases already pending as of December 1, 2015 . . . ."  District Court Standing Order 15-02 will apply to Bankruptcy Court cases because the local rules for the District Court govern proceedings in the Bankruptcy Court when there is no Local Bankruptcy Rule to the contrary.  A copy of the standing order is available at the District Court's website:  http://www.ksd.uscourts.gov/standing-order-15-02-regarding-fed-r-civ-p-4m-update/.

Judge Karlin suggested language on 521(f) orders

Judge Karlin conducted a hearing on March 11, 2015 dealing with a creditor's request in several cases for tax and financial information pursuant to 11 U.S.C. 521. The matters were continued to March 27, but Judge Karlin indicated that if any parties desired to submit agreed orders prior to that date, she wanted to be sure that any orders contained language safeguarding debtors' privacy rights in tax information. To that end, she is posting draft language she recommends parties consider. The draft addresses all three sets of tax and financial information requested just to provide a template, but Judge Karlin acknowledges that in many cases some of the language may not apply and would be deleted.
