About Calendars
**Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Law and Motion calendars have time slots with a limited number of cases allowed.

Your preferred hearing date should be inserted on your pleading. If the date requested is unavailable, the court may reach out to you for an alternate date.

All long-cause cases — set for trial — are called on Fridays at 8:15 a.m. Cases are then assigned to departments within the Court on the following week.

The Presiding Judge calls all short-cause matters on Fridays at 8:30 a.m. Cases are then assigned to departments within the Court to be heard that day.
