Attorney Update: Central District of California Bankruptcy Court Clarifies Withdrawal of Motions

In order for a motion to be properly disposed of, withdrawal of motions must be docketed using the proper event code. To withdraw a motion, an attorney must create a pleading in standard pleading format and file it in the appropriate case using the Voluntary Dismissal of Motion event code. Do not use the Withdraw re: event code, as it is for documents other than motions.

The Voluntary Dismissal of Motion event code can be located from the CM/ECF menu bar under Bankruptcy > BKother > Voluntary Dismissal of Motion. The same event code is also to be used to withdraw a motion on an adversary proceeding.
