    The District Judges hearing cases are passing cases set for hearing during the week of March 30. This applies to all cases which require a physical presence and hearing. The pretrial announcements, revocation announcements, etc. will continue to be done by email to the Court Coordinators with a copy to the State’s attorney. Hearings requiring a physical presence that are presently set the week of March 30 are passed UNLESS attorneys requesting to retain their setting contact the appropriate Court Coordinator by email by noon on Thursday, March 26, with an agreed time for a phone conference with the Court. It will be the responsibility of the attorneys to coordinate a time for the phone contact with the office of their opposing counsel.

    What this means is that criminal cases set for appearances next week (including pleas, sentencings, etc.) are reset UNLESS you and opposing counsel have a conversation with the Court and show a good reason why your case is essential and should remain on the docket. That conversation will need to take place before the close of business on Thursday, March 26.

    Please review your dockets promptly!

    Thank you for your cooperation and your patience. It is our intent to keep attorneys, our staff and litigants as safe as possible.
