Notice of Hearing in Blank Requirement Eliminated
Automated hearing notice forms, developed by our ECF Administrator, Susan Hoffman, have eliminated the need for a notice of hearing in blank document for Madison pleadings that require a hearing be scheduled. When docketing the hearing scheduled event, the ECF system will automatically create the hearing notice and provide additional service information:
- All parties served electronically
- Moving party to serve and provide proof of same
- Notice mailed via Bankruptcy Noticing Center
Please bear with us as we remove all references from the User's Manual.
