Functionality is available in CM/ECF for debtors' attorneys to run the Judge/Trustee assignment (JTA) module when filing new bankruptcy cases. Running JTA in this manner will allow an attorney filer to immediately download a mailing matrix from CM/ECF that includes the case trustee.
Please note: The JTA functionality does not affect the random judge/trustee assignment used by the Clerk's Office; it simply allows the assignment to occur faster. Attorneys should ensure that creditors have been uploaded into CM/ECF for the bankruptcy case before using the mailing matrix as part of a Certificate of Service for a Chapter 13 Plan.
