REMINDER TO ATTORNEYS APPEARING BY PHONE IN THE U.S. BANKRUPTCY COURT:

Whenever you appear by phone for a hearing in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, you need to review the hearing notice on the court docket for the toll free call in number, access code, and participant security code for EACH hearing.  The phone number, access code and security code will typically appear in a pdf attachment to the docket entry setting the hearing, so you must open the attachment.  The access codes are not the same in Omaha and Lincoln, and the access codes will be set based on where the hearing is held, not where the case was filed.

Example: An Omaha case may be scheduled for hearing in Lincoln.  The access code that would be provided would be the Lincoln access code.
