**MARCH 31, 2020 UPDATE**

Coronavirus/COVID-19:   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 safe at home. 

We are establishing Virtual Courtrooms. Court hearings in your case that we can hold remotely  via video or phone conference will be held on the Zoom platform, which is free to you. You will receive an email from the Court if we are proceeding with your hearing with the information you need to connect.  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.

Video appearance is required for any participant whose testimony is necessary so the judge can administer the oath.

Please wait until a day 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 calling the judge’s judicial assistant.

All hearings scheduled for the week of April 6, 2020 and forward will proceed as scheduled via Zoom platform.  Future motion calendar and special set hearings can be scheduled through CourtMap and will be heard in the same manner until further notice.

*    Motion Calendars will be heard on Tuesdays, Wednesday and Thursdays at 8:15 a.m.

To SET a Motion:

To set a motion calendar hearing, select the date from the Court's show availability (found on courtMAP).
Submit your supporting documents (notice, filed motion, etc.) when creating the event (setting the hearing) on courtMAP.  If the Motion is not submitted the hearing will not be heard.   DO NOT create multiple events (set multiple hearings) on any one case.  
Once a green "Success" message appears, the hearing has made calendar.  


DO NOT SET STATUS CONFERENCES OR CASE MANAGEMENT CONFERENCES.  They will not be heard.  Submit the appropriate motion instead.

IMPORTANT: Although the movant and the parties listed on the service list will receive an email indicating that a hearing has been set, a notice of hearing will
not automatically generate.  The movant MUST e-file the notice of hearing via the e-portal system and through CourtMAP.  

**The Court will not hear more than one (1) motion per case per motion calendar.** 

*    No joining motions or Cross Notices - Only 1 motion will be heard.  Motion Calendar is for 5 minutes only.

*     Motion to Withdraw and Motion for Continuance of Trial MUST be set on the Motion calendar.

To CANCEL a motion calendar hearing:
Only the moving party can cancel the hearing.  The moving party must file a notice of cancellation with the Clerk and then cancel the hearing through CourtMAP.  

*    For telephonic appearances:  Please call chambers 3-4 days before the hearing to leave your call in number and the name of the attorney appearing telephonically.    Telephone hearings are done at the end of the calendar.  

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.
