If the order being submitted is regarding a hearing held in open court, the date of that hearing and the parties in attendance must be included in the first sentence of the order. All orders/judgments are to be reviewed by all counsel of record prior to submission. Do not submit any orders in advance of an upcoming hearing.
- Orders submitted for cases involving pro se litigants must include language that the moving party will be serving the pro se party with a copy of the order via US Mail.
- NOTE: When setting a hearing online, the Order Setting Hearing is immediately uploaded for signature (be sure to hit the submit button 2 times). DO NOT DO A NOTICE OF HEARING FOR A SPECIAL SET HEARING. The online scheduling system does not allow you to hold dates, so you must be sure the date is coordinated with all parties prior to setting the hearing. All motions must be filed and docketed with the Clerk prior to scheduling a special set hearing. All orders must include the motion filing date.
- Orders/dismissals/judgments, etc. must be in WORD FORMAT with the case style & case number on the left margin. Do not use tables or macros with the case style or attorney names.
