Rule 1.3. Duties of Counsel.
a. Presence of Counsel. It shall be the duty of counsel, or the party, if not represented by counsel, to be present when his/her matter is called for hearing or disposition, unless excused in advance by the judge. A failure of counsel or the party to be so present without good cause shown may call for the striking of the matter from the calendar or the imposition of such sanctions as the judge directs.
b. Advice to Court. In any case where more than forty (40) days have elapsed since a matter has been submitted to the court for decision, and no such decision has been rendered, counsel shall notify the court administrator to ascertain whether such matter is still under advisement.
c. Case assigned to visiting judge. When a matter is assigned to a visiting judge, counsel shall mail copies of all applicable pleadings, motions, affidavits and exhibits to the assigned judge at that judge's regular place of business.
d. Courtroom attire. Counsel shall, at all court appearances, present themselves appropriately attired, in a manner befitting their profession. Counsel shall instruct their clients and witnesses as to appropriate courtroom attire.
