Motion Calendar Procedures
In order for your matter to be added to Judge Butchko's Motion Calendar, the moving party MUST:
(1) Attempt to coordinate hearing with opposing counsel. If, despite good faith effort, the moving party is unable to obtain reasonable cooperation in scheduling the matter, the hearing may be set unilaterally. The Court expects that any motion may be heard eleven days after its filing.
(2) File motion and Notice of Hearing with the Clerk; and
(3) Upload motion and supporting documents, if any, via courtMAP at least three (3) DAYS PRIOR TO THE HEARING.
Responses: Parties wishing to submit a response to a matter set on Motion Calendar must file said response with the clerk's office and upload documents through courtMAP.
Cancellations: Counsel for the party who placed the matter on calendar shall file the notice of cancellation with the Clerk of the Court. If the case was set through courtMAP you must cancel the hearing through courtMAP as well.
Making Calendar: In order to verify if your case made the Motion Calendar, please visit courtMAP to confirm date. In the event a hearing is properly noticed but for some reason does not make the calendar, the Court will hear the motion as scheduled.
Discovery Disputes: Attorneys (and pro se litigants) must make every good faith attempt to confer with the person or party failing to meet discovery obligations in an effort to secure the information or material without court action. Sanctions may be imposed on those found in violation of this procedure.
