Rule 9014-1

Applicability of Federal Rules

Unless the Court otherwise directs, the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, as they may be amended from time to time, shall apply to adversary proceedings, contested matters and contested involuntary petitions in this District to the extent made applicable by the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure.  A Federal Rule of Civil Procedure that is not otherwise applicable shall not be deemed applicable simply because it is referred to in an applicable Rule.

Committee Notes 2007: This Rule is derived from former General Order 81, which governed the applicability of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure in bankruptcy proceedings. The General Order had become outdated because the 2004 amendments to Bankruptcy Rule 9014(c) now expressly exclude Federal Rules 26(a)(1), 26(a)(2), 26(a)(3) and 26(f) from contested matters.
