Notice Regarding Court Operations

Monday, September 30, 2013

In the event of a federal government shutdown at midnight on September 30, the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Alabama will continue operations and remain open during regular business hours on Tuesday, October 1, 2013. The Judiciary receives non-appropriated funding outside of appropriated funding from Congress and can continue its normal operations for a short period of time. With these non-appropriated funds, we anticipate and estimate that the Judiciary can continue operations for two weeks without a final budget for fiscal year 2014 or a continuing resolution authorizing and providing funding for an interim period. Should this status change, we will update this notice.
In the event there is no federal government shutdown, we will likewise continue operations and remain open during regular business hours.
Please let us know if you have any questions by calling us at 334-954-3800.
