Local Rule 7012. RESPONSIVE PLEADING CONSENT TO ENTRY OF FINAL ORDER OR JUDGEMENT

Responsive pleading requirements. In addition to statements required by Fed. R. Bankr. P. 7012(b), in an adversary proceeding or contested matter, the first responsive pleading, motion, or paper shall contain a statement that the pleader does or does not consent to the entry of final orders or judgment by the bankruptcy judge if it is determined that the bankruptcy judge, absent consent of the parties, cannot enter final orders or judgment consistent with Article III of the United States Constitution. Failure to do so constitutes consent to the matter being heard and final orders or judgment being entered by the bankruptcy court.
