Should Counsel or Pro-se party become frustrated in their attempt to get an agreed date for a hearing from opposing counsel, a hearing will be held at 7 am upon unilateral notice of the date by either side.  Phone appearance will be permitted if the date is inconvenient for counsel to attend in person.  Either way both counsel shall have their calendar available for the hearing to schedule the matter which the frustrated party is trying to set.  Attorneys fees may be available if the Court finds any party to have failed to co-operate in good faith with the setting of the subject hearing.

Submit your supporting documents (filed motion, etc.) when creating the event (setting the hearing) on courtMAP.  DO NOT create multiple events (set multiple hearings) on any one case; the system allows for two (2) motions to be set on each case.  

Once a green "Success" message appears, the hearing has made calendar.  

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.  

To confirm a hearing, click on the "docket" tab on the navigation bar and select the event date (the hearing date); the scheduled hearing will appear.  

**The Court will not hear more than two (2) motions per case per motion calendar.** 

To appear telephonically: A motion for telephonic appearance, along with the Court's form order must be submitted for the Court's approval via the proposed orders option on courtMap.  All Motions for Telephonic Appearance must indicate the reason why a telephonic hearing is needed.  If the reason stated is that counsel has a hearing in another courthouse, the motion shall contain the name and case number of the other case.  Please email the Judicial Assistant a copy of the order. 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.
