The Clerk’s office procedures for closing cases is largely governed by an agreement between the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts and the United States Trustee.  We are updating our closing procedures per that agreement. As a practitioner or party to a bankruptcy case, you may notice more streamlined language in the docket text order entered at case closing. Also, the Court will not close a case until 30 days after the filing of the trustee’s final report, final account, or report of no distribution, to allow for the filing of an objection to such report or accounting.
