Local Directives in Small Claims

Setting Down a Second Settlement Conference

  • If the settlement conference reads endorsement , " settlement conference to be scheduled...." it is the parties responsibility to go to the clerk and request a date.
  • If the settlement conference endorsement reads " settlement conference to be scheduled by the clerk...." then and ONLY then will the clerks automatically set the matter down for a new settlement conference.

New Directives

  • According to the local court clerks, in April 2020 a pilot project will be launched requiring pre-trial telephone conference for:
a) Trials that have a legal representative on both sides, and,
b) Trials that are expected to take more then one day according to the settlement conference judge.
Representatives will not be able to pick trial dates in advance where the trial is expected to take longer then one full day. The trial must be scheduled by the local Deputy Administrative Justice.

Trial Scheduling

  • As long as trials are not expected to exceed one day the person setting the matter down for trial may ask for any available date at the time he/she pays the trial setting fee.
