If a calendar is canceled due to unexpected events, parties may reclaim their motions to the next available calendar. If, however, the matter needs immediate action by the court, the party may apply for permission to schedule an earlier hearing date with the court. Note: all citations must be re-issued unless the court orders otherwise.

6) The following information is required when making a telephone marking:

  • The position of the case on the calendar
  • The name and docket number of the case
  • The entry number and title of the motion
  • The full name of the person making the marking and the law firm name, if applicable
  • Confirmation that counsel and self-represented parties of record have been notified of the marking.

7) Please do not call the clerk’s office to confirm delivery. A Short Calendar Markings Confirmation and Receipt produced upon completion of the electronic Short Calendar Markings Entry transaction serves as an acknowledgment of delivery.
 

The Honorable Elizabeth A. Bozzuto
Chief Administrative Judge
Family Division
