9013-4 Certificate of Service

(a)   A person filing any document that under the United States Bankruptcy Code or Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure must be served, including documents seeking ex parte, expedited or emergency relief, shall file contemporaneously a certificate of service of the document. The certificate should be filed as a separate document in the CM/ECF filing system. The certificate shall:

(1)      identify the documents served;

(2)      identify the persons served by name and address; and

(3)      state the date and method of service.

A certificate reciting only that service has been made on "all interested parties", "all counsel of record," or other collective designation, does not comply with this Local Rule.

(b)   In addition to any other persons on whom the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure or these Local Rules require service, a person filing any document shall serve the document on the trustee, the debtor, debtor's counsel, and the United States Trustee.

(c)   Documents filed electronically are deemed served upon all Electronic Filers in the case or proceeding, provided that the Clerk's notice of electronic filing indicates that the document has been served electronically upon the Electronic Filer. Service of the document upon Electronic Filers by United States Mail or other method is not required unless the notice of electronic filing indicates that the CM/ECF system did not serve notice of the event upon the Electronic Filer.

(d)   Documents filed electronically shall be served upon persons other than Electronic Filers by United States Mail or other method specified in the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure.

(e)   The court may strike documents that do not comply with this rule.
