Noticing of 341 Meeting in a Chapter 11 Case

In all Chapter 11 cases, counsel for the debtor is responsible for noticing the 341 Meeting. Upon the U.S. Trustee's filing of a Request to Schedule Section 341 Meeting, the Court will mail written notification of this filing to debtor's counsel. This notification will instruct counsel to prepare the Notice of Commencement of Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Cases, Meeting of Creditors and Fixing of Certain Dates (341 Meeting Notice). Deadlines for mailing this notice and for e-filing the Notice and Certificate of Service will also be included in the notification you receive from the Court. To facilitate this process, a form for the Notice has been posted on the Court's website (download this form in: Microsoft Word or WordPerfect format.)

It is the responsibility of debtor's counsel to modify the form as needed for the Chapter 11 case. The notice may be distributed in the format provided. Please enter information as appropriate. The date, time, and location of the 341 Meeting can be found in the U.S. Trustee's Request to Schedule Section 341 Meeting. Be sure to include a contact telephone number for informational purposes. Do not include the address and phone number of the Court. Only include claims agent information if the claims agent has been approved through Court Order. If a claims agent has been approved by Court Order, include a toll-free contact telephone number and specify the claims agent information. If you substantively modify the 341 Notice, you must contact David D. Bird, Clerk of Court, for approval prior to mailing. If you do not substantively deviate from the form, there is no need to forward the notice to the Clerk for approval.
