2) Short Calendar markings will occur from 9:00 a.m. Tuesday to 4:00 p.m. Thursday of the week preceding the Civil Short Calendar. In the event a state holiday falls on Thursday preceding the calendar, matters may be marked from 9:00 a.m. Tuesday to 5:00 p.m. Wednesday. If a state holiday falls on Friday preceding the calendar, matters may be marked from 9:00 a.m. Tuesday to 11:00 a.m. Thursday. Upon release of the Short Calendar Markings Entry transaction on the Judicial Branch website, markings may be submitted electronically based upon the above time periods except that the periods will commence upon system availability, generally 7:00 a.m. Tuesday.

3) Counsel and pro se parties may mark a matter either by fax or by telephone. A standard fax form has been adopted and is available on the Judicial Branch website; a fillable version (JD-CV-85) is under development. Additionally, upon release of the Short Calendar Markings Entry transaction on the Judicial Branch website, attorneys registered with the Statewide Grievance Committee and law firms which have obtained a law firm juris number may enroll and obtain a secure password that will enable them to mark Civil Short Calendar matters electronically. The use of a fax machine or the electronic Short Calendar Markings Entry transaction are encouraged as timesaving methods of transmittal.

4) Regardless of the method of transmittal, counsel and pro se parties are required to provide the following information when making a marking:

  • Column number and position on the calendar;
  • Name and docket number of the case;
  • Number and title of motion;
  • Marking;
  • Full name of the person making the marking and the firm name, if applicable; and
  • Confirmation that all counsel and pro se parties of record have been notified of the marking.
  • 5) Counsel and pro se parties shall bring the confirmation of the marking to the short calendar hearing of an arguable matter. This may be in the form of a fax and a transmittal confirmation sheet, a Short Calendar Markings Confirmation and Receipt produced upon completion of the electronic Short Calendar Markings Entry transaction or a detailed signed statement from the person who telephoned the marking to the court.

    6) A fax and a transmittal confirmation sheet, or a Short Calendar Markings Confirmation and Receipt produced upon completion of the electronic Short Calendar Markings Entry transaction serve as an acknowledgment of delivery. A telephone call to confirm delivery is not required. The unnecessary duplicative action of calling to verify receipt is burdensome to the clerks' offices.
