IN THE MATTER OF: JEFFREY SINGLETON, Debtor.

Case No. 05-14112.United States Bankruptcy Court, N.D. Indiana, Fort Wayne Division.
November 10, 2005

DECISION AND ORDER
ROBERT GRANT, Bankruptcy Judge

At Fort Wayne, Indiana, on November 10, 2005.

The notice of motion and opportunity to object which Ford Motor Credit Company (hereinafter “Movant”) served in connection with its amended motion for relief from co-debtor stay does not comply with the requirements of N.D. Ind. L.B.R. B-2002-2 because:

a. The notice does not adequately “state the relief sought” by the motion. N.D. Ind. L.B.R. B-2002-2(c)(3).
b. The stated deadline for filing objections, September 19, 2005, is only seventeen (17) days after the date of the notice and creditors are entitled to at least twenty (20) days notice of the opportunity to file objections. N.D. Ind. L.B.R. B-2002-2(b)(1).

Since creditors and parties in interest have not been given appropriate notice of the motion and the opportunity to object thereto, the court cannot grant it at this time. Movant shall prepare and serve an Amended Notice of Motion and Opportunity to Object which complies with N.D. Ind. L.B.R. B-2002-2 and file proof thereto within fourteen (14) days of this date. See, N.D. Ind. L.B.R. B-9013-4(a). The failure to do so will result in the motion being denied without prejudice and without further notice.

SO ORDERED.
