Orders/Agreed Orders Continuing or Settling Matters Scheduled for Hearing

Thursday, November 9, 2017

It is the intention of the Court/Clerk's Office to enforce a procedure, without exception, that we have publicized and included in most hearing notices for some time beginning with hearings scheduled the week of 8/14/17.   Any order or agreed order that either continues or resolves a matter scheduled for hearing e-filed in CM/ECF (or filed on paper and received in the Clerk's Office) less than 3 business days prior to the hearing will be processed in the normal course and the matter will not be stricken from the Court's hearing calendar for that day.  Should the parties reach a resolution or find it necessary to request a continuance and not be able to file the necessary order/agreed order at least 3 business days prior to the hearing, at least one of the parties should be present at the scheduled hearing to either the request the continuance or announce the settlement.
