Instructions for Scheduling Hearings: 

Any issue to be considered by Judge Nobles should be presented in the form of a motion filed with the Clerk of Court with copies provided to all parties of record.  It is the responsibility of the moving party to set the motion for hearing. To request a hearing, the requesting party should email a copy of the filed motion to the judicial assistant (copying all parties). The requesting party should also include the amount of time requested and any other parameters that should be considered. Dates will then be provided. For criminal hearings, the requesting party should include whether the defendant is in custody or out of custody.  Any memoranda, case law, or other documents that parties wish Judge Nobles to consider prior to a hearing should be e-mailed or otherwise delivered at least 48 hours before the hearing. Copies should be provided to all parties in the matter. If a party is submitting a memorandum that cites case law, all cases cited should be provided to the judge.  If you have questions about any of the above information, please contact our office.
