The WAWB Best Practices series is going back to basics with a Motions Practice Primer! Particularly geared toward those new to bankruptcy practice, and a refresher for those who have been working in the bankruptcy area for awhile, this article focuses on the step by step process of getting a motion filed, set for hearing, confirmed, and heard in the Bankruptcy Court for the W.D. Washington. Particularly beneficial are the references to the Local Rules W.D. Bankruptcy. Thanks to Shane Creason, Term Law Clerk to the Hon. Mary Jo Heston, for this contribution.
