PROOFS OF CLAIM
In a chapter 9 case, the court fixes the
time within which proofs of claim or interest may be filed. Fed.
R. Bankr. P. 3003(c)(3). Many creditors may not be required to
file a proof of claim in a chapter 9 case. For example, a proof of
claim is deemed filed if it appears on the list of creditors filed
by the debtor, unless the debt is listed as disputed, contingent,
or unliquidated. 11 U.S.C. § 925. Thus, a creditor must file a
proof of claim if the creditor’s claim appears on the list of
creditors as disputed, contingent, or unliquidated.
