March 2020 Scheduling Announcement

Due to COVID-19 all uncontested dockets have been cancelled until further notice. If you have a case set on our regular family or civil docket, between now and May 1, 2020, you will be receiving an email from the court. Do not come to the court house, for a hearing, unless you are specifically instructed to do so.

Uncontested Docket.

You do not need to set a hearing for a prove-up.  

Our uncontested docket, for attorneys,  is held Monday-Thursday at 8:30 a.m.  Please note that there are often exceptions to these dates!  We do not schedule the uncontested docket, except for pro se cases.

Generally, I would recommend that you check with me, before planning to come on a certain date, just in case the Judge is not going to be on the bench that day.

The following dates are confirmed and available dates:  

January 6, 7, 8, 9, 13, 21, 22 and 23
February 3, 10, 11, 12, 13, 18, 19, 20, 26 and 27

*We do not have an uncontested docket during jury trial weeks but usually have another Judge cover the 8:30 docket.
