SUBMITTING MOTIONS AND SCHEDULING HEARINGS
Any matter to be considered by the Judge should be in the form of a motion filed with the Clerk of Court. Copies should be provided to all parties on record with a courtesy copy supplied to the Judge by email. Please provide copies of case law at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled hearing.

It is the responsibility of the moving party to set the motion for hearing and to coordinate that hearing with the Judge’s office and all counsel of record. If a party needs to request a continuance after a motion has been set, the moving party is withdrawing the motion, or the motion is conceded, please let opposing counsel and the Court know as soon as practical. Motions must be filed in a timely manner as to allow the opposing party sufficient time to review, determine if subpoenas are necessary and if so, permit sufficient time for service. As a general rule, motions requiring witness testimony should not be set less than twelve days out from the date of Notice.

A proposed order will need to be provided to the Judge’s office via email in Word format. Please be sure to include a courtesy copy of the Motion.

ARRAIGNMENTS/TRAFFIC/VIDEO COURT
If an attorney or defendant requests an appearance date be reset outside of the current cycle; he or she must provide the request in writing. The document may be emailed or faxed to the Judge’s office. After review, the attorney or defendant will be contacted with a decision.

FAILURES TO APPEAR
All warrants will remain outstanding until served unless recalled for sufficient reason, subject to approval of the Judge.

PLEA DAY/MOTIONS TO CONTINUE
Personal appearances by the attorney of record, if any, and defendant are necessary. Any request to waive an appearance should be requested by written motion and filed at least two days prior to the scheduled hearing date.

If the opposing party has no objection, and the case has not been previously continued, no hearing will be required.
