Starting April 4th, the majority of Court dockets went back to being held in person. All attorneys should check their notice cards carefully, and if there is any confusion please contact the assigned Judge's staff. In lieu of providing a hard copy of motions and responses to the clerk's office as outlined in USCR 6.1, attorneys practicing in the Eastern Judicial Circuit shall provide a hard copy of their motions and responses directly to the assigned Judge's staff, specifically where a ruling or hearing date is being sought and the document is greater than three pages in length, including exhibits.
Pursuant to Uniform Superior Court Rule 6.1 when utilizing the e-filing system, the attorney or party shall notify the opposing parties and the assigned Judge, including their staff, by e-mail of the motion or response no later than 24-hours after e-filing.
Additionally, pursuant to Uniform Superior Court Rule 4.10, all attorneys practicing in the Eastern Judicial Circuit shall notify the Judge and their staff immediately upon the settlement or dismissal of any civil actions.
