Please check the News & Announcements section of this web site periodically for updates to the Local Rules, Forms, and Procedures.

Earlier versions of the Court's Rules, Procedures Manual, and Implementation Order are now in the Archives section of this web site.  The revised CM/ECF Administrative Procedures are included in the revised Procedures Manual.

The United States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Missouri (“Court”) is in the process of revising its Local Rules to become effective December 1, 2022. As part of this process the Court placed the proposed Local Rules revisions out for a 30-day comment period. That comment period expired on August 19, 2022. All comments received were duly considered. The Proposed Revised Local Rules to become effective December 1, 2022 have been submitted to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri for final review and approval. Below is a clean copy of the proposed revisions, a redline copy of the proposed revisions, and a document explaining the revisions and their rationale.

If you have any questions, please contact the Attorney Advisor to the Clerk of Court at attorney_advisor@moeb.uscourts.gov.
