Inclement Weather Procedures
[last updated: 12/09/2013]

In the event of inclement weather resulting in the closing of court facilities, a Weather Notice will be posted on the court's website. If a decision is made to close the Seattle and Tacoma courthouse facilities, bankruptcy hearings scheduled in Marysville and Port Orchard will also be cancelled. Hearings scheduled for the Vancouver facility may go forward depending upon the weather circumstances in that area. In the event of a court closure, further instructions will be posted on the court's website, www.wawb.uscourts.gov.

For debtors scheduled to appear at 341 meetings today in a facility that is now closed, those hearings will be continued. Please contact the trustee assigned to your case -- whose name and telephone number appear on the notice you received for today's meeting -- for your new hearing date. If the facility is opening late, please plan to appear as close to your scheduled time as possible.

If there is no Weather Notice on our website, you should assume that all facilities are open and operating on schedule.
