Guest Voice Mailboxes
[April 13, 2004]

The guest voice mailbox system is operational. However, there is a change in the way the system is accessed. To access the system, dial 313/962-5035, when the AUDIX message begins press the # key and your three-digit extension number. The system will no longer prompt you for the extension number.

Please click HERE for instructions
on how to use the system.

In an attempt to avoid busy signals on TRAC, we have installed additional modems, DOUBLING our dial-in capacity. We hope this will allow easier access to TRAC during these large docket periods.

New Trustee Policy Regarding
Executory Contract Claims

[January 9, 2004]

In an effort to promote conformity with BR 3001 and substantially complying with the Official Proof of Claim form, our office will be filing objections to the proofs of claim of several large automotive creditors with regard to their executory contract claims. Currently, many such claims contain the total value of the vehicle as the amount of the claim and leave it to the various trustee staff to determine the actual amount the creditor is entitled to during the life of the plan. Many claims fail to disclose any arrearages on the face of the claim, but list arrearage amounts on attachments.


The attachments are "supporting documentation" which should not set forth separate claim amounts, but should justify the amount listed on the face of the claim. The claim amount should identify the sums that the creditor expects to receive during the life of the plan. A further breakdown showing monthly payments amounts and a total market value for the vehicle can be part of an attachment to the claim.

The Trustee would welcome any responsive email comments on this issue and would like to come to a resolution over format for large institutional creditors.
