Delaware Bankruptcy Court Implements Procedure in Response to the Outbreak of COVID-19
On March 16, 2020, the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware implemented a General Order in response to the outbreak of COVID-19. As part of our effort to help our clients and friends navigate this challenging time, the Morris Nichols Business Reorganization & Restructuring Group has summarized this important announcement from the Delaware Bankruptcy Court.
The General Order provides that all hearings, status conferences and trials scheduled to be held in open court that are not time sensitive are continued to a date to be determined after April 15, 2020. The Delaware Bankruptcy Court will conduct all time sensitive hearings by telephonic or video conference unless otherwise ordered by the presiding judge. The General Order also provides that the presiding judge will determine the manner of submitting evidence in a telephonic or video conference hearing held prior to April 15, 2020.
Please do not hesitate to contact any member of the Morris Nichols Business Reorganization & Restructuring Group if we can be of assistance regarding the General Order or otherwise.
