Minor Settlement Hearings

Beginning on May 6, 2024 we will schedule minor settlement hearings, electronically, every Monday afternoon from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.  and every other Thursday afternoon from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.  We will have four open hearing slots each afternoon. 

Hearings will continue to be scheduled using the “e-hearing locator.”  The e-hearing schedule has been updated to reflect this change.  As before, a proposed entry setting hearing must be uploaded with the appropriate hearing date to the e-filing system.

Our minor settlement hearings will continue to be held via zoom, unless counsel requests a live hearing.
