News & Announcements: November, 2013
The Judicial Conference of the United States approved several changes to the Miscellaneous Fee Schedule
at its September 2013 session. One change is the new fee of $176 for the filing of motions for the sale of property free and clear of liens under 11 U.S.C. § 363(f). Motions filed under this statute provide asset purchasers and sellers in bankruptcy cases with substantial benefits, and impose significant burdens on the courts to resolve them.
