(a)   Definition

A “Prepackaged Chapter 11 Case” is a Chapter 11 case in which the Debtor, substantially contemporaneously with the filing of the Chapter 11 petition, files a Prepackaged Scheduling Motion, a proposed plan, a disclosure statement (or other solicitation document), and a voting certification with respect to votes solicited pre-petition that the Debtor contends may be counted to achieve confirmation of the proposed plan pursuant to 11 U.S.C. § 1126(b).  

(b)   Scheduling Procedures

A Prepackaged Scheduling Motion shall be included under Local Rule B-9013-3(f) and treated as a First Day Motion under S.D. Ind. B-9013-3.  If a Prepackaged Scheduling Motion is properly filed and served in accordance with Local Rule B-9013-3, the Court will consider expedited scheduling of a hearing on confirmation of a proposed “prepackaged plan” (without the prior approval of a disclosure statement) when confirmation of such a plan is supported by pre-petition acceptances of the proposed “prepackaged plan” in accordance with 11 U.S.C. § 1126(b) and Fed.R.Bankr.P. 3018(b).  To obtain such expedited scheduling, counsel for the Debtor shall contact the courtroom deputy for the Chief Judge.
