Motion Calendar is conducted via Zoom unless otherwise indicated. DAYS OF THE WEEK AND TIME VARY, PLEASE CHECK COURTMAP FOR AVAILABILITY. 

Hearings shall be “coordinated” with all counsel and unrepresented parties. “Coordinated” means that the moving party offers a date upon service of the motion and all others respond within one (1) business day with agreement to the offered date or an alternate date(s) that is/are within a week of the offered date and is on a date that the Court holds Motion Calendar. Failure to “coordinate” entitles the moving party to set the motion for hearing on the offered date. 

a. You may set more than one motion at a time, but your case will be heard at the end of the motion calendar.

b. Zoom meeting ID is created for every hearing. The meeting ID is sent out to all parties on the eservice list prior to the hearing date. It is the responsibility of the scheduling party to provide the Zoom information to anyone not on the service list.  

c. No hard copies or binders will be accepted in chambers.

d. Although the movant and the parties listed on the service list at the time the hearing is set will receive an Email from courtMAP indicating that an event has been created, a notice of hearing WILL NOT be generated. The movant MUST e-file the notice of hearing via the e-portal system.

e- Motions to Dismiss: When setting a Motion to Dismiss for hearing, you MUST upload the Motion and the Complaint as supporting documents to the Courtmap hearing date. Motions to dismiss MUST be set for hearing within 45 days of being filed. Failure to set the Motion to Dismiss for hearing shall be deemed waived and the motion will be stricken by the Court and a default will be entered. 

f. Motions for Reconsideration, Rehearing, New Trial, and other post-trial motions (excluding Entitlement to Fees and Costs: These motions will not be heard on motion calendar and should not be set for hearing unless instructed to do so by the Court. Email your motion to the Judicial Assistant. The Court will review the motion and instruct the parties on how to proceed.

Cancellations: The moving party may cancel a hearing on a motion calendar on CourtMap. In the case that the parties CANNOT cancel the hearing please E-mail the Judicial Assistant, NO HEARING WILL BE CANCELLED VIA PHONE. 

To Make Calendar: Select available date and time via courtMap. The filed motion(s) and all documents in support must be attached when the hearing is scheduled. Once a green "Success" message appears, the hearing has made calendar.  You must still prepare, file, and serve a Notice of Hearing. 

Responses: Unless otherwise instructed by the Court or as required by an applicable rule of Court, any opposition to a filed Motion shall be filed, served, uploaded to CourtMap and emailed to the Court (dgonzalez-varona@jud11.flcourts.org) no later than seven (7) business days prior to the date of the hearing, absent which the relief requested in the Motion may be granted without oral argument.
