Trustee’s Memorandums

TRUSTEE’S MEMORANDUM TO THE BAR ON VARIOUS ISSUES        

                 The Trustee will, from time to time, post on his web site memorandums to the members of the bar in order to assist them in understanding the procedures in the Eastern District of Texas as interpreted by the Trustee as well as explaining the positions that the Trustee takes with respect to these procedures and other issues that may come up.  Nothing therein should be considered legal advice by the Trustee to the members of the bar.  The ultimate responsibility falls on the members of the bar to make his or her own decisions on the best ways to represent his or her clients in the Eastern District of Texas.  Each member of the bar is capable of reading and understanding the Bankruptcy Code, the Bankruptcy Rules, the Court’s Local Rules, and the case law relating to such.  Each member of the bar is capable of forming his or her own opinion about these procedures and other issues.  The Trustee’s memorandums are only being provided as a courtesy to the attorneys.  If a member of the bar decides not to follow these suggestions, the Trustee will probably file an appropriate objection where the parties may then bring the issue to the Court for determination.

                 The memorandums included herein are subject to change or revisions without notice.
