6/23/2020 The Bankruptcy Court of the Eastern District of California welcomes Jennifer E. Niemann as its newest bankruptcy judge.  Judge Niemann will serve her fourteen year term in Fresno, California and preside in bankruptcy cases in Bakersfield, California.  Judge Niemann was appointed on June 16, 2020.  Prior to her appointment, Judge Niemann was in private practice and represented Chapter 11 debtors, Chapter 11 trustees and creditors in bankruptcy cases and out-of-court restructurings.  Judge Niemann also served as a long-term judicial law clerk to three different bankruptcy judges of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of California.  Judge Niemann received her bachelor’s degree, summa cum laude, from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and her J.D. from Harvard Law School.
5/31/2020 All matters to be heard by the Honorable Fredrick E. Clement on Monday, June 1, 2020 will be continued to Monday, June 8, 2020.
In light of quickly evolving circumstances and to ensure physical safety, Chief Judge Kimberly J. Mueller has ordered all U.S. Courthouses in the Eastern District of California closed to all tomorrow, Monday, June 1.  Since Department A has a digital record that cannot be operated without a live person in the courtroom, the court is unable to provide a record of hearings on Monday, June 1.  As a result, on its own motion the court is continuing all hearings noticed for June 1 to June 8 at the same time.  The court will be issuing a notice of continuance.
