Judge Gillen’s ZOOM link is the same every day. Please make a note of it and feel free to share with anyone who would like to appear electronically. The link for Division W is as follows:

(New Procedure) Proposed Orders:
Judge Gillen is now requiring that all orders be submitted through OLS (Online Services).
A copy of the motion as well as opposing counsel’s email confirmation indicating agreement with the order can be attached or you may indicate in the “comments” section that opposing counsel has reviewed and agreed to the language of the order. Additionally, if you have multiple case numbers, the order must be uploaded for each case number.
If the Proposed Order is NOT agreed, DO NOT submit the proposed order. You must set the matter for hearing instead.
Please refer to Judge Gillen's Divisional Instructions for all divisional procedures, thank you.
Suggestions to Paralegals and Attorney's before you call the JA:
- Please read the divisional instructions first before calling the JA.
- Make sure your Motions have been filed and docketed before you request hearing time.
- Check the court record and see if there are any current future dates on the case you will be calling about.
The best way to reach the JA is by e-mail: CAD-DivisionW@pbcgov.org
Courtesy copies of pleadings/motions/case law, etc. should be sent along with the Notice of Hearing or an e-mail/cover letter indicating the date/time of the scheduled hearing.
