L.B.R. 9036-1. Notice by Electronic Transmission

(a)  Electronic Service.  

(1)  Attorney registration in CM/ECF constitutes consent to electronic service of all documents.

(2)  Unrepresented parties may consent to electronic service of all documents in either a bankruptcy case or an adversary proceeding by filing a completed form in substantial conformity with L.B.F. 9036-1.1 or L.B.F. 9036-1.2, as applicable.   

(3)  When a document is filed in CM/ECF, it is served electronically.  The time to respond or reply will be calculated from the date of electronic service, regardless of whether other means of service are used.  The Notice of Electronic Filing (“NEF”) generated by CM/ECF reflects the parties served. 

(b)  NEF Does Not Constitute Service.  Electronic transmission of a NEF does not constitute service or notice of the following documents that must be served non-electronically:

(1)  service of a sealed document;

(2)  service of a complaint and summons in an adversary proceeding under Fed. R. Bankr. P. 7004;

(3)  service of a subpoena issued under Fed. R. Bankr. P. 9016;

(4)  notice of the meeting of creditors required under Fed. R. Bankr. P. 2002(a)(1); and

(5)  where other means of service are otherwise required under any applicable statute, rule, or Court order.

(c)  Service on non-CM/ECF Users.  A person or entity that is entitled to service of a document, but is not an electronic filer or one who has consented to electronic service, must be served as otherwise provided by the Fed. R. Civ. P., Fed. R. Bankr. P. and these Rules.

(d)  Case Specific Service.  Until an attorney enters an appearance in a specific case, service on the attorney does not constitute service on any party.
