IMPORTANT.  Gregory Stefan, Division Manager, Norfolk - Newport News Divisions, U.S. Bankruptcy Court, has asked that we disseminate the following and attached information.  You are encouraged to read the protocol carefully since protocols have changed since prior release pursuant to the March 13, 2020 conference call with the Bar.:

 

UNITED STATES BANKRUPTCY COURT

EASTERN DISTRICT OF VIRGINIA
PUBLIC NOTICE
ORDER ESTABLISHING TEMPORARY HEARING PROTOCOL FOR BANKRUPTCY
CASES PENDING IN THE NORFOLK AND NEWPORT NEWS DIVISIONS—
NORFOLK STANDING ORDER NO. 20-1
NEWPORT NEWS STANDING ORDER NO. 20-1

 
The attached combined Norfolk Standing Order No. 20-1 and Newport News Standing Order No. 20-1 is being issued as a consequence of the continually evolving recent outbreak of the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) throughout the United States and the Commonwealth of Virginia. Based on guidance received, as described therein, the Court has determined that the reduction of “social distancing” is necessary, and to facilitate that need, the Court has established
a protocol (the “Protocol”) that is temporary in nature, and which eliminates the need for in-person hearings.

The combined standing order for the Norfolk and Newport News divisions of the Court are effective March 19, 2020, and remain so through and including April 30, 2020 (the “Protocol Period”). Exhibit A thereto sets forth the Norfolk and Newport News Hearing Protocol. This protocol “applies in all cases and  proceedings to be filed or already filed in the Norfolk and Newport News Divisions of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Easter District of
Virginia.” Particular attention is required as to each “Category” set forth and otherwise described in the above-noted Exhibit A. 


In Exhibit A, particular attention also is required as to the manner in which the hearings will be conducted. Please see the “IMPORTANT” information set forth in the third and fourth unnumbered pages therein and the “FINAL POINTS” information, as set forth in Exhibit A’s forth unnumbered page.
