Public Comment on Revision of the Local Bankruptcy Rules


The U.S. District Court for the Northern Mariana Islands is soliciting comments on proposed revisions to its Local Bankruptcy Rules. These proposed rules are modeled after the local rules of the United States Bankruptcy Court, District of Hawaii and incorporate references to this court's Local Rules where appropriate. The public and the bar are encouraged to submit any comments and suggestions on the proposed revisions as soon as possible. Comments and suggestions must be received no later than January 31, 2019.

Comments and suggestions can be submitted electronically to:

Alternatively, hard copy of comments and suggestions may be submitted in person or by mail to:

Hon. Heather L. Kennedy
United States District Court for the Northern Mariana Islands
P.O. Box 500687
Horiguchi Building, 2nd Floor
123 Kopa Di Oru Street
Beach Road, Garapan
Saipan, MP 96950

The proposed revisions to the current local bankruptcy rules are so extensive that a redline comparison to the current rules is entirely unhelpful and is therefore not provided.
