Revised Rule 3002: Is Lack of Notice Grounds for a Late-Filed Claim?

In 2017, Rule 3002 of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure was amended to require the timely filing of a proof of claim or interest by secured creditors, as well as unsecured creditors and equityholders in chapters 7, 12 and 13. The amendment also modified the deadline for filing proofs of claim and interest (now generally 70 days after the order for relief instead of 90 days after the first scheduled § 341 meeting).
