Effective May 1, 2013 the Clerks office of the Middle District of Florida Bankruptcy Court will no longer serve copies of orders to interested parties in a case. With very few exceptions it will be the responsibility of the Movant, the prevailing party or other party as directed by the Court ( Responsible Party) to serve copies of signed orders to interested parties and file a proof of service in compliance with Local Rules 7005-1, 7005-3, 9014-1 and 9072-1 and F.R.B.P. 2002, 5005, 7004 and 7005.
Proposed Orders must include the statement Attorney [Name of submitting attorney] is directed to serve a copy of this order on interested parties and file a proof of service within 3 days of entry of the order.
The docketing of the order by the Clerks office will generate a Notice of Electronic filing (NEF). Once entered on the CM/ECF docket, the Responsible Party must promptly serve a copy of the order to interested parties and file a proof of service of the order within 3 days of the entry of the order.
The proof of service should be filed using the CM/ECF docket event Proof of Service and be properly related to the served order.
