HOW TO SET A HEARING DATE ON SPECIAL SET:
FILE YOUR MOTION WITH THE CLERK.  NO ORIGINAL MOTIONS SHOULD BE SENT TO THE JUDGE. 
For scheduling Special Set hearings via CourtMAP, please coordinate with opposing counsel.
If your motion will take you more than 5 minutes, then please special set it; this includes discovery motions that go item by item and will require more than 5 minutes to review. 
When scheduling a special set hearing please coordinate with opposing counsel and set via CourtMAP.
Telephone appearances are permitted, a written motion MUST be filed and a proposed order granting the motion must be submitted via courtMAP.  The proposed order MUST contain a telephone number where the attorney may be reached.  If a voice mail answers, then the party may have to re-schedule the hearing. 

The Notice of Hearing for ANY hearing must contain the title of the motion to be heard and the date that motion was filed.
If the motions are resolved, please file a Notice of Cancellation prior to hearing date. You may fax the Notices of Cancellation to 305-569-2508.

CONTINUANCES:  All continuances MUST be made by written motion.  NO ORE TENUS MOTIONS FOR CONTINUANCES WILL BE ENTERTAINED. A Motion for Continuance must be FILED AND SET FOR HEARING PRIOR TO THE SPECIAL SET HEARING SOUGHT TO BE CONTINUED AND NEVER on the same date of the special set hearing.
MOTIONS TO COMPEL DISCOVERY: First time Motions to Compel Discovery may be submitted ex-parte with a proposed order via courtMAP.  You do not have to set it on Motion Calendar for hearing.
MOTIONS TO COMPEL DATES:  DO NOT set a Motion to Compel Dates for depositions on Motion Calendar.  If the opposing party does not provide reasonable dates within two business days of the request by you in WRITING VIA EMAIL OR LETTER, then you may unilaterally set the deposition.  The burden will then be on the opposing party to move for a protective order and explain to the Court why no dates were provided.
MOTIONS FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT:  All Motions for Summary Judgment must be special set with the Judicial Assistant with opposing party on the telephone.   Seven (7) days prior to the special set hearing date please deliver a hard copy of the motion along with copies of affidavits, exhibits and case law in support of the Motion for Summary Judgment to Judge’s chambers.
MOTION TO TAX FEES AND AWARD ATTORNEYS FEES:  For information on how to proceed with this type Motion please see courtesy copy of Order Preliminary to Hearing on Motion to Tax Fees and Award Attorneys’ Fees under Documents tab of this webpage.

A party may request to set a matter unilaterally only if reasonable attempts to reach the opposing party have been unsuccessful and the opposing party has been given reasonable opportunity to respond. After receiving a date and time for a unilaterally set hearing, the notice must include the language that undersigned set this matter unilaterally after good faith efforts to reach the opposing party were unsuccessful.

If the opposing party is not represented and counsel lacks contact information for the unrepresented party, you may call the Judicial Assistant without having the opposing party on the line.  If counsel has a phone number or email for the opposing party, counsel must follow the procedure outlined above for unilaterally setting hearing after a reasonable attempt to communicate regarding the hearing.

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.
