California Bankruptcy Court Eliminates Certain Paper Notices
The court said it would stop issuing mailings to addresses deemed undeliverable by the U.S. Postal Service.
A new system is being used by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California that is aimed at reducing paper waste.
According to the court, the Case Management/Electronic Case Filing system will no longer feature a paper mailing from the Bankruptcy Noticing Center when an order is put on the docket. However, an electronic Notice of Filing will still be sent.
"ECF users are strongly encouraged to maintain their current contact information with the court," a bi-monthly newsletter from the court said.
However, the court did state that a paper notice would still be issued to alert concerned parties to the first meeting of creditors, which will include the debtor's Social Security number.
The court also said that it would discontinue mailing notices to addresses that have been listed as undeliverable by the U.S. Postal Service. The goals in doing so are to limit paper waste, unneeded spending on postage and follow-up efforts from members of the court.
Bankruptcies across the country have continued to increase this year and could reach 1.6 million.
