Foreclosure motion calendar hearings are limited to 5 minutes per case. The Court will hear no more than two (2) motions per case per foreclosure motion calendar. Foreclosure matters will only be heard on Tuesdays unless you are scheduling a Motion to Cancel Sale. Motions to Cancel Sale may also be scheduled for hearing on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 9:00 a.m. DO NOT schedule non-foreclosure matters on Tuesdays; non-foreclosure matters are only heard on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 9:00 a.m.
To set a foreclosure motion for hearing:
*Select the date from the Court's foreclosure motion calendar availability (found on courtMap).
*Submit your supporting documents (filed motion, notice of hearing, etc.) when creating the event on courtMAP. DO NOT create multiple events on any one case; the system allows for two (2) motions to be set on each case. If you are setting two motions, submit supporting documents for each motion. Once a green "Success" message appears, your hearing has made the calendar.
IMPORTANT: Although the movant and the parties listed on the service list will receive an email from courtMAP indicating that an event has been created, a notice of hearing will not automatically generate. The movant must e-file a notice of hearing via the e-portal system.
To confirm a hearing: click on the "calendar" tab in the navigation bar and then on "view events," select the hearing date; the scheduled hearing will appear. You can also click on "calendar," then on "events by case" and enter the case number; all upcoming hearings for that case number will appear.
To cancel a foreclosure motion calendar hearing:
Movants cancelling a foreclosure hearing shall e-file a notice of cancellation and cancel the hearing on courtMAP. To do this, click on: -calendar, -view events, -select the case, -click case status ready, -click cancel from the dropdown, -click save, -select cancellation reason, -click confirm cancellation.
THE FOLLOWING MOTIONS MUST ALWAYS BE SET FOR HEARING:
NOTE REGARDING "WALK-INS"
The Court does not allow
contested/disputed "add-ons" or "walk-ins" during a motion
calendar when the Court is in trial. If you are planning on
"walking in" to a motion calendar with opposing counsel for a
contested/disputed motion, please call the day prior to the date of the motion
calendar to make sure that the Judge is not in trial.
