Please be advised that in the event of a shutdown of the federal government due to a lack of funding, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court and the U.S. District Court will remain open and fully operational. The General Services Administration (GSA) has assured us that the federal buildings will be open and security will be in place at the entrances as usual. The U.S. Marshal Service has also assured us that the Contract Security Officers (CSOs) will be on duty in all court locations as usual. Also, the Office of the U.S. Trustee has advised us that Chapter 7, 11 and 13 Section 341 meetings will be held as scheduled.
Hearings and trials scheduled in the bankruptcy court will proceed as planned, unless you are notified otherwise in a particular case or matter.
