The Five Minute Motion Calendar is heard on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 9:00 a.m.  Only one motion per case will be heard.

To set a motion, you need to select an available date and time via courtMAP.  The motion and supporting documents must be attached at the time the hearing is scheduled. Once a green "Success" message appears, the hearing has made calendar.  You must still e-file and serve a Notice of Hearing.  You must allow 7 business days for notice.

Please do not submit proposed orders via courMAP prior to the date of the hearing. 

To cancel a hearing, the party who set the motion on calendar must cancel the hearing via courtMAP and a Notice of Cancellation must be e-filed.

ORDERED AND ADJUDGED as follows:
1.         The Motion to Withdraw is GRANTED.
2.         Movant, [INSERT MOVANT'S NAME], shall mail a copy of this order to [INSERT CLIENT'S NAME] forthwith.
3.         Within 30 days from the date of this order, [INSERT CLIENT'S NAME] shall either:

4.         Failure to comply with the preceding paragraph will create a presumption that [INSERT CLIENT'S NAME] no longer wishes to participate in this lawsuit and the Court may sua sponte or on motion of opposing party impose sanctions against [INSERT CLIENT'S NAME].  Sanctions may include the imposition of fees and costs, striking of pleadings, entry of default, and dismissal with prejudice.
5.         In the interim, [INSERT CLIENT'S NAME] is required to comply with notices requiring [INSERT CLIENT’S NAME] appearance in court.

If a party is not able to check an email account regularly, but has a working phone with text capability, the Court strongly encourages signing up for text alerts (https://www.jud11.flcourts.org/Programs-and-Services/Online-Services/Hearing-Text-Alerts).
7.         THIS ORDER DOES NOT CANCEL ANY PENDING FORECLOSURE SALE DATE.
8.        The Clerk of the Courts is directed to send all future notices, pleadings, motions and other documents filed in this case to [INSERT CLIENT’S COMPLETE NAME], [INSERT CLIENT’S COMPLETE MAILING ADDRESS] AND [INSERT CLIENT’S EMAIL ADDRESS].

This Section is now using courtMAP and document submissions are no longer available via eCourtesy.

courtMAP is a new online Management and Access Platform built upon technology infrastructure from Broward’s Court Management System.

courtMAP combines eCourtesy with online scheduling, online notification/confirmation, and allows judges to create and e-File orders. courtMAP also allows parties to self-schedule their case events - motion calendar, special sets, and trials - and attach the documentation previously submitted via eCourtesy.
