Motion Calendar Days/Time:

Motion Calendar via Zoom are available Tuesday and Thursday at 10:00 a.m. and Wednesdays at 11:00AM.

One motion per day, unless approved by the Court. 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 so “coordinate” entitles the moving party to set the motion for hearing on the offered date.

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:  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 (palopez@jud11.flcourts.org) no later than two (2) business days prior to the date of the hearing, absent which the relief requested in the Motion may be granted without oral argument.


Cancellations:   The moving party may cancel a hearing on a motion by filing a Notice of Cancellation and emailing same to the Court (palopez@jud11.flcourts.org) at least one (1) business day prior to the hearing date.
