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
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;
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.
