If the documents curing these deficiencies are not processed by noon on February 9, 2018, it is recommended that the matter be continued to March 6, 2018, at 8:30 a.m. unless the party appears and requests a different date, or submits a request for a different continuance date prior to the hearing. (Local Rule 1701(b).) If the matter is continued, documents must be submitted at least 10 days prior to the new hearing date to be considered.


Due to staffing limitations, processing times may be delayed. To assist in processing, attorneys and parties should include the next court date in the “Filing Description” field provided by the electronic service provider. That field is also used for further descriptions of the document being e-filed, so be sure to put the calendar date FIRST in the field – BEFORE any further description of the document being e-filed (e.g.: 06/28/16 For XYZ).
