Foreclosure Motion Calendar Procedure

In order for your matter to be added to the Foreclosure Motion Calendar, the notice of hearing and motion(s) MUST:  

(1) be filed with the Clerk; and 
(2) courtesy copies, including supporting documents, if any, must be submitted via courtMAP under "Foreclosure Motion Calendar" or the matter will NOT be heard.
*Attorneys MUST bring files to the hearing, if needed.

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

Foreclosures:  Foreclosure matters submitted for Motion Calendar MUST BE SET Tuesday at 9:00 A.M. 

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 Foreclosure Motion Calendar Hearings.
