Joint Administration (Motion)

 

Pursuant to Fed. R. Bankr. P. 1015(b)  -  Joint Administration is the combining of two or more cases in the interest of efficiency and economy.  It involves the use of a single docket for the matters occurring in the administration of the combined estates, and the joint handling of other purely administrative matters that may aid in expediting the cases and rendering the process less costly.  Unlike consolidation, it does not involve the pooling of the assets and liabilities of the separate estates which are being jointly administered.  Proofs of claim shall remain filed in each separate case and only combined into one case upon consolidation of assets & liabilities by order of the court.
