The United States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin will be closed on Thursday, November 27, and Friday, November 28, 2014, in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday.
 
In anticipation of Chief Judge Pepper's move to the District Court, the Clerk of Courts will be reassigning her cases to other bankruptcy judges.  The Clerk expects to complete that process by December 5, 2014.  If you have a case that has not been transferred to another Judge by that date, please contact the Clerk's Office at 414-290-2701.
 
National Creditor Registration Service

National Creditor Registration Service

The National Creditor Registration Service (NCRS) is a free service provided by the U.S. Bankruptcy Courts to give creditors options to specify a preferred U.S. mail, e-mail address, or fax number to which bankruptcy notices should be sent.

The Preferred Address service supports the amendment to title 11 U.S.C. § 342(f) of the Bankruptcy Act of 2005, along with the pending amendment to Bankruptcy Rule 2002(g)(4), both of which permit a creditor to specify a preferred mailing address to be used by all the bankruptcy courts or by particular bankruptcy courts for providing notices.

The Electronic Bankruptcy Noticing (EBN) program supports Federal Rule of Bankruptcy Procedure 9036 which allows court notices to be transmitted electronically to notice recipients, delivering them faster and more conveniently than mailed paper notices.

If you are interested in participating in the NCRS, you might consider the benefits that EBN can offer your organization over mailed paper notices.
