United States Bankruptcy Court
Traci Davis, Courtroom Deputy
The Northern District will permit counsel to utilize a self-calendaring procedure for the scheduling of matters requiring 30 minutes or less of court time. This procedure will allow counsel to self-select available dates and times on the appropriate judge's calendar and serve notice without contacting the courtroom deputy for a hearing setting. The court strongly encourages the use of this self-calendaring procedure when appropriate. Courtroom deputies are available by email or telephone to schedule non-self calendared hearings as needed.
The self-calendaring procedure for Judge Jernigan is as follows:
NOTE: Occasionally there may be instances where self-calendared matters are rescheduled possibly due to docket congestion or unforeseen schedule changes. In these instances, the courtroom deputy will contact counsel for the movant, as soon as possible, so that a notice of rescheduled hearing may be issued and served.
NOTE: Unless otherwise noted, all hearings should be noticed for 14th Floor, Courtroom #1 in Dallas.
Preliminary hearings on Motions for Relief from Stay (all chapters) will be heard on designated Thursdays at 1:30 p.m. in Courtroom #1.
