Title 1. General Provisions
Chapter 300. General Provisions
Effective: April 1, 2022
MD Rules, Rule 1-324
(a) Notification by Clerk. Upon entry on the docket of (1) any order or ruling of the court not made in the course of a hearing or trial or (2) the scheduling of a hearing, trial, or other court proceeding not announced on the record in the course of a hearing or trial, the clerk shall send a copy of the order, ruling, or notice of the scheduled proceeding to all parties entitled to service under Rule 1-321, unless the record discloses that such service has already been made.
Committee note: In many counties, the Assignment Office is under the purview of the County Administrative Judge. In those counties, in accordance with the directives of the County Administrative Judge, an employee of the Assignment Office, rather than the Clerk, sends some of the notifications required by this Rule.
(b) Notification When Attorney Has Entered Limited Appearance. If, in an action that is not an MDEC action as defined in Rule 20-101 (m), an attorney has entered a limited appearance for a party pursuant to Rule 2-131 or Rule 3-131 and the automated operating system of the clerk's office does not permit the sending of notifications to both the party and the attorney, the clerk shall send all notifications required by section (a) of this Rule to the attorney as if the attorney had entered a general appearance. The clerk shall inform the attorney that, until the limited appearance is terminated, all notifications in the action will be sent to the attorney and that it is the attorney's responsibility to forward to the client notifications pertaining to matters not within the scope of the limited appearance. The attorney promptly shall forward to the client all such notifications, including any received after termination of the limited appearance.
Committee note: If an attorney has entered a limited appearance in an affected action, section (a) of this Rule requires the MDEC system or the clerk to send all court notifications to both the party and the party's limited representation attorney prior to termination of the limited appearance.
(c) Inapplicability of Rule. This Rule does not apply to show cause orders and does not abrogate the requirement for notice of a summary judgment set forth in Rule 2-501(f).
Source: This Rule is in part derived from former Rule 1219 and is in part new.
