Local Rule Number: 
Rule 2007-1
2000 Series

(A)       During the 21 day period immediately following the date of formation of a committee under 11 U.S.C. §1102(a), the committee shall not be required to provide access to information under §1102(b)(3)(A), to the extent such information has been reasonably designated by the party providing such information as non-public, proprietary, privileged, work product or otherwise confidential.  At any time during or after this 21 day “safe harbor” the committee may move the court for entry of an order clarifying the type and extent of access to information the committee shall be required to provide under §1102(b)(3)(A).  Provided the committee has filed a motion requesting such relief prior to the expiration of the 21 days safe harbor, the committee shall not be required to provide access to information under §1102(b)(3)(A), to the extent such information has been reasonably designated by the party providing such information as non-public proprietary, privileged, work product or otherwise confidential until such times as the court enters an order on such motion.

(B)       Upon motion by the committee, and upon notice and a hearing, the court may determine the appropriate media for solicitation and receipt of comments from creditors including, without limitation, a designated e-mail address, phone number, or website to which creditors and parties-in-interest may direct comments to the committee.

(C)       Nothing in this local rule is intended to limit, expand or otherwise affect the right of any creditor of the kind described in §1102(b)(3)(A), to seek relief under §1102(b)(3)(C), at any time.
