Please see the “STANDING ORDER – CIVIL CASES” on this web page and read the paragraph titled CIVIL TRIAL TERM CALENDAR, sub-paragraphs A – E.

No case shall appear on the published civil trial calendar unless requested in writing or by email to the Clerk, Patti M. Graves, by counsel for any party with a copy of said request to opposing counsel in each case at least thirty (30) days before the trial term, or as directed by the Court.

No civil case appearing on the published trial calendar will be considered ready for trial unless notice is given in writing or by email and received by the judge’s secretary, no later than fifteen (15) calendar days immediately prior to the first day of the trial term, stating the case is “ready” for trial. This “15 day letter” or “ready letter” shall be served upon opposing counsel by mail, email or in person at the same time the letter is given to the Court. Links to the email addresses for the Clerk and the judges’ secretaries/assistants may be found at the COURT OVERVIEW tab at the top of these instructions.

Cases that have been timely announced as “ready” will be called numerically at Calendar Call to establish the order of trials during the term. Each attorney is expected to be present unless excused by the Court. Pretrial telephone conferences will be set at that time. The Pretrial Information letters required by the Standing Order must be provided to the Court prior to the conference call unless already done at a previous trial term. To view the current trial calendar, please click on the CIVIL CALENDAR tab at the top of these Instructions.
