08-1 AMENDED GENERAL ORDER No. 2 - Vacating Adoption of Interim Bankruptcy Rules

WHEREAS, by court order dated October 12, 2005, this court adopted the Interim Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure to implement the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005 pending promulgation of permanent Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure by the Committee on Rules of Practice and Procedure of the Judicial Conference of the United States; and whereas, with the exception of Interim Rule 5012, such Rules shall become effective on December 1, 2008,


The order of October 12, 2005, is vacated effective December 1, 2008.  Interim Rule 5012 shall remain in effect until further order of this court.

Date Issued: October 12, 2008


Section 4022 of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act or Act) permits certain borrowers of Federally backed mortgage loans, as there defined, to request forbearance on their mortgage loan for up to 180 days, subject to possible extension for an additional 180-day period. The Act further provides that during the forbearance period “no fees, penalties, or interest beyond the amounts scheduled or calculated as if the borrower made all contractual payments on time and in full under the terms of the mortgage contract, shall accrue on the borrower’s account.” CARES Act, §4022(b)(3).

Section 4023 of the Act permits certain borrowers with Federally backed multifamily mortgage loans to request a forbearance for up to three 30-day periods.

If a debtor receives forbearance, including during any CARES Act covered period, with respect to an allowed secured claim provided for by the debtor’s plan of reorganization, whether confirmed or unconfirmed, and the creditor has filed a notice of request for forbearance, the creditor who holds that claim may, with the debtor’s agreement, file a supplemental claim for all amounts that would have otherwise come due during the forbearance period stated in the notice.

The debtor’s agreement to the supplemental claim amounts must be memorialized by the parties’ execution of Local Form LF 2 (“Stipulation Regarding Supplemental Claim Due to Mortgage-Payment Forbearance”). The creditor must file the form before or at the same time as it files the supplemental claim.
