Bench-Bar Liaison Committee Judicial Procedures Survey

Many years ago, well before the implementation of ECF filings, the Bench-Bar Liaison Committee generated a survey of the Northern District Bankruptcy Judges. The questions focused on various practice procedures utilized by the judges and the questions and responses were printed out in a black notebook. The following is an effort to update and replace the old notebook. We have surveyed the judges in response to a series of questions divided up into different topics. Each judge's responses to the survey are posted below and these documents are maintained by the Bench Bar Liaison Committee.
