Long Civil Trials

Search General District Court

Any contested case that is expected to take two or more hours to complete should be brought to the attention of the judge or clerk’s office on the first return date or time of selecting a trial date so that special docketing arrangements can be made.

Prior to selection of a long trial date a Long Trial Status Order will be entered by the court. The parties will be given a status hearing date to ensure all requirements in the Order have been completed. A long trial date will be selected at the status hearing.

If an interpreter is needed for a long trial, the party requesting the interpreter is responsible for making the request to the court.

If a case scheduled on the long trial calendar settles early, the plaintiff must notify the clerk’s office so that the trial date can be released for future use.
