The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Maryland is pleased to announce the selection of Mark A. Neal , Esq. as the next Clerk of Court. Please see the attached announcement.
The Court, after considering its constitutional and statutory duties, determined that it must continue case resolution functions during a lapse of appropriations. Furthermore, due to significant decrease in staff over the past several years, all current chambers and clerk’s office staff members are needed for the Court to perform its constitutional and statutory responsibilities to resolve case disputes. Therefore, all such staff must report to work during a lapse. Based upon this policy and these determinations, the Court entered Administrative Order 13-05 on October 9, 2013.
