Judge Mannes generally agrees to remove motions for relief from stay from the docket if a consent is reached, if there is no response, or if the parties agree to a continuance, if the Courtroom Deputy is contacted by the movant before 12:00 Noon the business day before the hearing. Any request for the matter to be continued to a later date must clearly indicate the movant has obtained the counter party’s consent.
A motion to avoid a lien must be accompanied by evidence of the value of the subject property and evidence of the amount of debt secured by senior liens.
