The Courthouse is now OPEN and NORMAL operations have resumed.  It is presumed that hearings before General Magistrate Pedraza will occur in person.  However, you may request a hearing to be conducted remotely via ZOOM.  Reserve the hearing time via CourtMap on the appropriate calendar (marked as ZOOM hearings) and send an email to 11thFCGM02@jud11.flcourts.org with the reason why you are requesting  a ZOOM hearing. After review, you shall receive confirmation or denial from the General Magistrate’s office.  Both parties MUST agree to proceed via ZOOM.  
If your hearing was previously scheduled via ZOOM, it shall proceed via ZOOM.  Confirmation of the type of hearing is on your Notice of Hearing. 

Submit Proposed Report and Recommendations of General Magistrate or Proposed Recommend Order of Hearing Officer via COURTMAP.  Only submit proposed reports after both parties have agreed to the form and content of the report.
