The General Session Motion Docket in Spartanburg County is created by the Clerk of Court’s Office. You will find the details for our motions docket listed below. Please pay special attention to the rules created by our Chief Administration Judge for General Session.
If you would like to file a motion in general sessions, you have three options:
Per Chief Administrative Judge Keith Kelly,
Motions will be broken down into several different categories to be heard at different times. We will no longer schedule based on priorities. We will build a larger docket so that when motions fall off the docket there will be no need to add motions to the docket. We will build motion dockets 3 months in advance. Cutoff for adding motions to the docket will be one week prior to the hearing date if space is still available on the next motions docket.
A. Initial Bond Motions
B. Pro Se Motions
C. All other motions
D. Back up motions docket
i. We will create a backup motions docket for CP weeks.
ii. This should consist of jail motions (ex: HD conversions, Bond Revocations,
reinstatements of HD, Rescinding BWs, bond amendments, refile of bond.)
iii. The back up dockets will be built a week or two in advance so that the attorneys know that their presence will be expected for these dockets.
