 Motion Calendar Procedures:

In order for your matter to be added to the Judge’s Motion Calendar, YOU MUST:
File motion with the Clerk; and Coordinate hearing with opposing counsel using CourMap.

Once the hearing is scheduled then upload a Notice of Hearing with the Clerk.

Upload motion, including supporting documents, if any,  via CourtMAP under "Motion Calendar"  at least seven (7) days prior to the hearing  or the matter will NOT be heard.

Responses:  Parties wishing to submit a response to a matter set on Motion Calendar must file said response with the Clerk and submit it via CourtMAP under "Motion Calendar" case number and hearing date, prior to the hearing date.

EX PARTE MOTIONS TO COMPEL: Before filing an ex-parte motion to compel please make sure you have complied with Eleventh Circuit Court Administrative Order No. 06-09 .  Motions that do not reflect compliance with the Administrative Order will be summarily denied.

Efiling is not the same as courtMAP: Matters that are only e-filed WILL NOT automatically upload to the Judge’s Motion Calendar. Efiling is for documents to be filed with the Clerk's Office electronically. CourtMAP is used to submit courtesy copies to chambers electronically.

Cancellations:  Counsel for the party who placed a matter on the Motion Calendar shall file the notice of cancellation with the Clerk. If the case was set through CourtMAP you must cancel it through CourtMAP. You do not need to call chambers to cancel Motion Calendar Hearings.

Making Calendar:  In order to verify if your case made the Calendar: 
    a. Log onto Court Map;
    b. Select “calendar” on top;
    c. Select “show events by case”;
    d. Enter your case number & click on the magnifying glass; and
Your case hearings will populate

All documents you would like Judge Thomas to review for a hearing should be uploaded on courtMAP to the event as supporting documents.

MOTIONS FOR RECONSIDERATION shall be submitted by email to chambers before setting for hearing. andiaz@jud11.flcourts.org
