Also effective February 11, 2019, Judge Deborah J. Saltzman’s pending Northern Division Chapter 13 bankruptcy cases and related adversary proceedings will be reassigned to Judge Martin R. Barash.
Following the reassignments, the judge’s initials at the end of the bankruptcy case and adversary proceeding numbers shall be changed to those to whom the matter was reassigned.
