DISTRICT IN WHICH CASE IS PENDING DIVISIONAL OFFICE NAME OF JUDGE RELATED ADVERSARY PROCEEDING (IF ANY) PLAINTIFF DEFENDANT ADVERSARY PROCEEDING NO. DISTRICT IN WHICH ADVERSARY IS PENDING DIVISIONAL OFFICE NAME OF JUDGE SIGNATURE OF ATTORNEY (OR PLAINTIFF) DATE PRINT NAME OF ATTORNEY (OR PLAINTIFF) INSTRUCTIONS The filing of a bankruptcy case creates an "estate" under the jurisdiction of the bankruptcy court which consists of all of the property of the debtor, wherever that property is located. Because the bankruptcy estate is so extensive and the jurisdiction of the court so broad, there may be lawsuits over the property or property rights of the estate. There also may be lawsuits concerning the debtor's discharge. If such a lawsuit is filed in a bankruptcy court, it is called an adversary proceeding. A party filing an adversary proceeding must also must complete and file Form 104, the Adversary Proceeding Cover Sheet, unless the party files the adversary proceeding electronically through the court's Case Management/Electronic Case Filing system (CM/ECF). (CM/ECF captures the information on Form 104 as par of the filing process.) When completed, the cover sheet summarizes basic information on the adversary proceeding. The clerk of court needs the information to process the adversary proceeding and prepare required statistical reports on court activity. The cover sheet and the information contained on it do not replace or supplement the filing and service of pleadings or other papers as required by law, the Bankruptcy Rules, or the local rules of court. The cover sheet, which is largely selfexplanatory, must be completed by the plaintiff's attorney (or by the plaintiff if the plaintiff is not represented by an attorney). A separate cover sheet must be submitted to the clerk for each complaint filed. Plaintiffs and Defendents. Give the names of the plaintiffs and defendants exactly as they appear on the complaint. Attorneys. Give the names and addresses of the attorneys, if known. Party. Check the most appropriate box in the first column for the plaintiffs and the second column for the defendants. Demand. Enter the dollar amount being demanded in the complaint. Signature. This cover sheet must be signed by the attorney of record in the box on the second page of the form. If the plaintiff is represented by a law firm, a member of the firm must sign. If the plaintiff is pro se, that is, not presented by an attorney, the plaintiff must sign.
