SCHEDULING A MATTER FOR HEARING

5 Minute Motion Calendar and Special Sets (All Other Matters For Hearing)

Motions must be scheduled with courtMAP only.

If the parties cannot coordinate on the date and time of a hearing, then then both parties must be on the phone when calling the Judge’s Chambers. If the parties agree on a date and time then only one party needs to call to schedule the hearing.

The motion must take only 5 minutes of hearing time.  All motions must be uploaded to the eFiling System no later than (5) business days before the scheduled hearing. Only proposed orders and agreed orders are to be uploaded to CourtMAP All orders must be in Microsoft Word format.

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.

NOTICE OF CANCELLATIONS

Cancellations shall be faxed to chambers at (305) 354-8788 at least 1 day prior to the scheduled hearing. Counsel shall also call the JA at (305) 354-8772 to confirm the cancellation.

Counsel must call the chambers regarding all motions to continue trial or strike trial dates even if agreed. The judge will review the motion and the JA will notify counsel of the Court’s determination.

TELEPHONIC APPEARANCES

All hearings are occurring via Zoom. If you want to appear via telephone, you can also dial-in to the Zoom hearing. The dial-in information will be included in the Zoom invite.
