Chief Administrative Judge Kelly’s rules regarding the Motions Docket:

  • The deadline for filing and serving the motion is five o’clock pm on the Thursday preceding the next term of court when motions will be heard.
  • The Clerk will prepare an unpublished docket no later than three o’clock pm on the Friday preceding the next term of court when motions will be heard and disseminate it to the parties who have pending motions thereon. 
    • Please check the docket Friday afternoons and provide any changes or updates to Alaina Freeman by 12:00 p.m., Monday.
  • The Clerk will publish the motions docket no later than three o’clock pm on Monday or the first day of the next term of court when motions will be heard and disseminate it to the parties who have pending motions thereon.
  • If this motion is withdrawn by a party, the motion must be re-filed and re-served to be heard at a later date. This will prevent motions from being stale.
  • If a motion is continued by the Court at the request of a party, both parties must agree to the term of court at which the motion will be heard and advise the Clerk immediately. Otherwise, the motion will be deemed withdrawn by the Court.
  • If a motion is not reached by the Court, it will be continued to the next motion docket and take priority over any and all new motions.
  • Once the motions docket is published, it may not be changed without leave of the Chief Administrative Judge or the judge presiding over the motions docket.
