Except for cancellations, there can be no changes,additions, swapping, or other alterations of themotion calendar. Attempts to accommodate suchrequests in the past have resulted in unnecessaryconfusion and inadequate notice of opposingcounsel.A party/attorney scheduling a hearing must

The original noticemust be timely filed with the Clerk of Court. TheJudges' and Magistrates ask that NO courtesy copiesbe sent to their offices on foreclosure cases only.If you CANCEL a hearing, you are required to file aNotice of Cancellation. If you are cancelling yourhearing ten (10) working days before the hearingdate you can go to JACS and cancel on-line byfollowing the instructions. If you are cancelling lessthan ten (10) working days please, immediatelycancel the hearing, by FAX'ing you're a request to(239) 252-8870 attention Karen. Include the reasonfor cancelling, our case number and style with dateand time of hearing and what party you represent.You do not need to attach the Notice of Cancellation(just send the original to the Clerk of Courts).
Whencancelling hearings over 30 minutes (Special Set)you are required to write to the Court for approvalor provide written proof the Issue is Settled.
Once a motion is scheduled through JACS,subsequent motions may not be "piggybacked"using the time reserved for the first motion absentprior approval of the Court. This does not precludean independent reservation of another timeslotduring the same hearing period for a differentmotion the same case, provided the timeslot isappropriate in length of time for the motion.Generally, each attorney/party with a stake in theoutcome of a motion scheduled to be heard will beentitled to a proportionate share of the reservedhearing time.
