(2) To the extent permitted under the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure, these rules, or any other order of the court, a filing user may use these negative notice procedures by serving motions, objections, and other papers by electronic means to any other filing user or party who consents to receive service by electronic means.

(3) A negative notice legend must be prominently displayed on the face of the first page of the paper. The negative notice legend must be in a form substantially as follows:


"Pursuant to LR 9014.1, the court will consider this motion, objection, or other matter without further notice of hearing unless a party in interest files an objection within twenty-one (21) days from the date of service of this paper. If you object to the relief requested in this paper, you may file your objection at the bankruptcy clerk’s office located in Las Vegas at the United States Bankruptcy Court, 300 Las Vegas Blvd. South, Las Vegas, Nevada 89101, or in Reno at the United States Bankruptcy Court, 300 Booth Street, Reno, NV 89509, and serve a copy on the movant's attorney and any other appropriate persons.

It is the duty of the objecting party to timely set the objection for a hearing and properly notice all parties in interest. If you do not file an objection within the time permitted, an order granting the requested relief may be entered by the court without further notice or hearing."

(c) Objections to any motion filed under this Rule must be made within twenty-one (21) days from service of the motion. The objecting party must schedule a hearing on the motion, objection, or other matter upon notice to the movant's attorney, the objecting party or parties, and others as may be appropriate. The objecting party must not give less than twenty-eight (28) days’ notice of the hearing. Replies must be filed and served no later than seven (7) days preceding the hearing date. Unless the court orders otherwise, the objecting party must schedule and notice a hearing on the objection. If a hearing on the objection is not timely set and noticed, the objection, unless otherwise ordered by the court, will be deemed withdrawn.

(d) In the event no party in interest files a timely objection, the court may consider the matter without further notice or hearing upon the submission by the movant of a proposed form of order granting the relief.

(e) The movant must submit the proposed order not later than fourteen (14) days after the expiration of the objection period. In additional to any other requirements, the movant must recite in a separate affidavit or declaration that:

(1) The motion, objection, or other matter was served upon all interested parties with the negative notice legend informing the parties of their opportunity to object within the appropriate number of days of the date of service; and

(2) No party filed an objection within the time permitted. In the event the movant fails to submit a proposed form of order within this time, the court may enter an order denying the matter without prejudice for lack of prosecution.

(f) Nothing in this Rule is intended to preclude the court from conducting a hearing on the motion, objection, or other matter even if no objection is filed within the time permitted in the negative notice legend.
