FILING PROOFS OF CLAIM IN CHAPTER 11 CASES

(a)  Time to file.

Pursuant to Fed. R. Bankr. P. 3003(c)(3) and except as provided in subdivision (b) of this rule, the last day to file proofs of claim in a chapter 11 case shall be ninety (90) days from the first date set for a § 341(a) meeting of creditors.  A claim of a governmental unit shall be filed before one hundred eighty (180) days after the date of the order for relief, except as otherwise provided in the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure.  The clerk shall notify all creditors and parties in interest of such bar date.

(b)  Extension.

The court may, for cause shown, extend the deadline upon appropriate motion, notice, and hearing.  If the § 341(a) meeting notice to creditors has already been sent by the clerk's office, the notification to creditors of an extension of deadline to file claims will be the responsibility of the debtor in possession and its counsel.
