Judicial Assignment History

 
Circuit Judge: Circuit Civil Division

 

Updated January 15, 2021

There are new Special Set openings January 20-22, 2021. Please email Chambers if you would like to set a hearing during this time.

We anticipate that a limited amount of Jury Trials will commence before the end of October. In order to have your case tried, the case must be certified pursuant to Administrative Memorandum No. 20-C 24 AF CA 01.  A 30-minute Pre-Trial Conference should be scheduled with between the parties on the Special Set Calendar prior to the deadline on the Trial Readiness Certification Order.

Procedure for submitting evidence for Zoom hearings is located in the Notices for Trial section as a Hearing Document.

Courthouses are closed for in-person hearings and trials based on public health advisories at the direction of the Florida Supreme Court. The Eleventh Judicial Circuit wants you to remain safe.  Therefore, we are establishing Virtual Courtrooms. Court hearings will be held on the Zoom platform, which is free to you and accommodates telephone call ins.  Zoom will be used for your hearing unless you request, and the court approves, another method for your hearing. 

You will receive an email from the Court with the information you need to connect through Zoom.  To participate by video, you must click on the weblink you received in the email invitation at the time your hearing is scheduled or call the phone number listed in the invitation to participate by phone. You do not need to download anything or set up an account in order for you to participate in a Zoom hearing.Please log in before the time set for the hearing.  You may need to wait in the “waiting room” until the judge finishes the hearing before yours. 

Please wait until two business days before your scheduled hearing for the court to send you an email containing a Zoom link and instructions.  If you resolve your matter, please cancel it in CourtMAP or, if you have no access to CourtMAP, by emailing the judge’s judicial assistant.

Please see the court website for additional information: www.jud11.flcourts.org

This page will be updated regularly. Please check for the latest information

Filing a motion for stay or for reconsideration does NOT relieve the party from complying with the court order and cases may be dismissed for failing to comply with court orders. See, Mercer v. Raine, 443 So. 2d 944 (Fla. 1983) and Cal v. Forward Air Solutions, 199 So. 3d 312 (Fla. 3rd DCA 2016).  “There are avenues of redress by appellate review for orders which may be erroneous, but so long as such orders are entered by a court which has jurisdiction of both the subject matter and the parties, they cannot be completely ignored without running the risk that an appropriate sanction may be imposed.” Johnson, 410 So. 2d at 980.

Motion Calendar in Division 2 is held via Zoom every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 9:00 AM and 9:30 AM. This includes Foreclosure Motions.

IF IT IS AN EMERGENCY, FOLLOW PROCEDURES FOR EMERGENCIES. IF IT IS NOT AN EMERGENCY IT IS YOUR OBLIGATION TO MAKE SURE THAT YOUR MOTION IS HEARD BEFORE YOUR COMPLIANCE DEADLINE. 

PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT PAPER COURTESY COPIES OR BINDERS ON ANY MATTER IN THIS DIVISION. 

 Motion Calendar Procedures:

In order for your matter to be added to the Judge’s Motion Calendar, YOU MUST:
File motion with the Clerk; and Coordinate hearing with opposing counsel using CourMap.

Once the hearing is scheduled then upload a Notice of Hearing with the Clerk.

Upload motion, including supporting documents, if any,  via CourtMAP under "Motion Calendar"  at least seven (7) days prior to the hearing  or the matter will NOT be heard.

Zoom links are sent out through CourtMap approximately one week before the hearing. If a Zoom link is needed for the Notice of Hearing please email Chambers and request the link.

Responses:  Parties wishing to submit a response to a matter set on Motion Calendar must file said response with the Clerk and submit it via CourtMAP under "Motion Calendar" case number and hearing date, prior to the hearing date.

EX PARTE MOTIONS TO COMPEL: Before filing an ex-parte motion to compel please make sure you have complied with Eleventh Circuit Court Administrative Order No. 06-09 .  Motions that do not reflect compliance with the Administrative Order will be summarily denied.

Efiling is not the same as courtMAP: Matters that are only e-filed WILL NOT automatically upload to the Judge’s Motion Calendar. Efiling is for documents to be filed with the Clerk's Office electronically. CourtMAP is used to submit courtesy copies to chambers electronically.

Cancellations:  Counsel for the party who placed a matter on the Motion Calendar shall file the notice of cancellation with the Clerk. If the case was set through CourtMAP you must cancel it through CourtMAP. If the motion was set prior to CourtMAP you must fax or email a copy to Division 2 at 305-349-7603, or CA02@jud11.flcourts.org prior to scheduled hearing. DO NOT CALL CHAMBERS TO CANCEL.

Making Calendar:  In order to verify if your case made the Calendar: 
    a. Log onto Court Map;
    b. Select “calendar” on top;
    c. Select “show events by case”;
    d. Enter your case number & click on the magnifying glass; and
Your case hearings will populate

MOTIONS FOR RECONSIDERATION shall be submitted by email to chambers before setting for hearing. CA02@jud11.flcourts.org / dediaz@jud11.flcourts.org
