|From the website of the United States Bankruptcy Court: Middle District of Florida|
Until further notice, please note that the Bankruptcy Court and Clerk's Office will continue to operate under its normal schedule, including matters set for hearing and public hours, in the event of a government shutdown on October 1, 2013. Section §341 meetings of creditors will also continue, as noticed.
Please note, a Google search of the web reveiled many blogs stating the bankruptcy courts would be shut down if the government shut down, as the courthouse workers would be out of work. Don't believe everything you read on the internet.
I you find any new information regarding the government shutdown as it effects the federal courts, please post it here.
