Local Bankr.R 5010-1 Reopening Cases.
(a) A Motion to Reopen a case pursuant to 11 U.S.C. § 350(b) and FRBP 5010 is an exception to the Contested Matter Procedure, may be set for a hearing, and shall state with specificity the reason for the reopening. See Appendix M. The Court, upon a finding of cause, may grant the motion, subject to appropriate limitations. A filing fee for a case reopened pursuant to 11 U.S.C. § 350(b) and FRBP 5010 shall be filed with the Motion unless the case is reopened to correct an administrative error, or on account of actions relating to the Debtor's discharge, or to redact a document that has already been filed pursuant FRBP 9037, if the redaction is the only reason for reopening the case.
(b) Any substantive motion filed with the Motion to Reopen may not be acted upon unless and until the Motion to Reopen is granted. If the substantive motion is a Contested Matter in accordance with Local Rule 9014-1, the substantive motion shall not be acted on, and a Notice of Contested Matter Bar Date shall not be served, unless and until the Motion to Reopen is granted.
