(a) Expedited Processing of Disclosure Statement
If the proponent of a plan in a small business case requests that the Court:
(1) determine that the plan itself provides adequate information and that a separate disclosure statement is not necessary;
(2) approve a disclosure statement submitted on an approved official form; or
(3) conditionally approve a disclosure statement subject to final approval at a hearing where the Court will also consider confirmation of the proposed plan,
the proponent shall file a notice along with the proposed plan or disclosure statement. The notice shall specify why the relief requested is appropriate. A sample notice is available on the Court’s website.
At the hearing on a request under subparagraph (a) of this rule the Court may also, either on its own initiative or at the request of a party in interest, consider whether a deadline for confirming a proposed plan should be extended.
