Rule 1.3. Law and Motion Day: Calendar and Time Limits
a. Law and Motion Day: Each division, in consultation with the Presiding Judge, shall schedule a Law and Motion Day. When Monday falls on a legal holiday, the following Tuesday shall be Law and Motion Day unless otherwise ordered by the court.
b. Calendar: Every Wednesday afternoon the clerk of the court shall prepare and make available to the public or post in a conspicuous place in the clerk's office a calendar for each division's next Law and Motion calendar. The clerk shall place on the calendar each motion and other matter noticed or set for hearing at that time or where oral argument has been requested, and all criminal arraignments, motions, sentencings and related matters which would ordinarily come upon the Law and Motion Day Calendar.
c. Time Limits: All matters on the Law and Motion Day Calendar shall not exceed 20 minutes total time in any cause without special permission obtained in advance from the assigned judge.
d. Duties of Counsel/Party: It shall be the duty of counsel, or the party, if not represented by counsel, to be present when the matter is called for hearing or disposition, unless excused in advance by the judge. A failure of counsel or the party to be present without good cause shown may result in striking the matter from the calendar and/or imposing sanctions as the judge directs.
e. Extended Hearings: Argument or presentation is limited to 20 minutes for each cause and 10 minutes for each side. Request for extended argument or hearing must be submitted in writing to the assigned judge at least 10 business days before the hearing, and, if granted, the matter shall be heard after disposition of all other matters remaining upon the calendar or at another definite time as the court directs.
