Expiration of Amended General Orders 20-0008 & 21-0003 & Supplemental Attorneys' Fees

Monday, March 28, 2022

The bankruptcy provisions of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”) sunset on March 27, 2022. As such, General Order 20-0008 titled “Chapter 13 Procedure Changes Resulting from CARES Act” and Amended General Order 21-0003 titled “Supplement to ‘Presumed Reasonable’ Fee in CARES Act Plan Extension Cases” have expired.

Amended General Order 21-0003 authorized debtor’s counsel to request fees beyond the “presumed reasonable” fee set by General Order 14-0005 (the “Supplemental Fee”). While Amended General Order 21-0003 has expired, debtor’s counsel may continue to seek the “Supplemental Fee” per the terms of Amended General Order 21-0003 for those cases in which a plan was confirmed prior to March 27, 2021 and a request for modification pursuant to 11 U.S.C. § 1329(d) was filed by March 27, 2022.
