Cases requiring interpreters mustnotify the Trustee prior to the 341 Meeting of any cases which
need interpreters. These cases will be held using the same interpretation service as before.

Debtors and their attorneys may be in the same location or they may participate separately by
calling in from different locations. However, the debtor’s attorney will need to have video
capability with their clients if they are calling in from separate locations.

In order to ensure the quality of the record, as well as increase the efficiency and improve the
overall meeting experience, all parties are reminded of the following guidelines for telephonic
meetings:

  • When joining the meeting, do not announce your presence, especially when the Trustee is conducting another meeting. Counsel should instruct his or her clients of this requirement.
