Court Adopts Amendment to Local Rule of Practice 2



 The Court has adopted amendments to Local Rule of Practice 2, formerly 'Assignment and Scheduling of Cases.' The rules are effective July 27, 2020.

Rule 2 has been separated into three parts. Rule 2, "Assignment of Judges and Consolidation of Cases," addresses reassignment of cases when a 'family case type' is filed pursuant to H.B. 595, and where necessary, the consolidation of cases. Rule 2.1, 'Administrative Judge and Unavailability of Administrative Judge,' makes capitalization and punctuation changes and does not change content. Rule 2.2, 'Scheduling of Cases,' removes unnecessary provisions, simplifies language, and changes punctuation and capitalization.
