Rule 3.3. Setting Cases for Trial
(A) Motion to Set and Certificate of Readiness. Unless the court has already set a trial, a party must file a Motion to Set and Certificate of Readiness, on a form approved by the Court, consistent with Rule 77, ARFLP. A copy must be provided to the opposing party, the assigned division, and the Case Management Services department.
(B) Controverting Certificates. A party who opposes the scheduling of a trial requested in a Motion to Set and Certificate of Readiness may file a Controverting Certificate, with a copy to the opposing party, the assigned division, and the Case Management Services department, within 10 days after service of the Motion to Set and Certificate of Readiness. The Controverting Certificate must state any objections to the Motion to Set and Certificate of Readiness. The Court may rule on the Controverting Certificate without hearing or it may schedule a Resolution Management Conference to address concerns raised in the Controverting Certificate and, thereafter, rule on the Motion to Set. An order setting the case for trial constitutes a ruling on the Controverting Certificate.
(C) Trial Date. When a Motion to Set and Certificate of Readiness has been filed and any Controverting Certificate has been ruled upon, the assigned division will schedule the case for trial or a scheduling conference pursuant to Rule 76.1, ARFLP, at which time a trial date will be set and will promptly notify the parties. Cases will be set for trial or a scheduling conference within 60 to 120 days after a Motion to Set and Certificate of Readiness is ruled upon, except in extraordinary circumstances. A case set for trial or scheduling conference is considered to be on the active calendar.
