Court Calendars

Below is a list of the Superior Court Calendars that are available for download. All court calendars and schedules are subject to change.

 Please note that upcoming court calendars are normally posted 7-10 days prior to the court date. If you have a question about an upcoming court date and a calendar is not posted for that date, please contact the assigned judge’s office for the most up-to-date scheduling information.

All scheduling of civil court dates must be done through the judge’s office. You, or your attorney if represented, may contact the judge’s office to schedule and confirm hearing dates.

Please have your case number or civil action file number and the county in which your case is filed available when you call.



         The Court expects you to speak to your clients BEFORE you are called in front of a Judge.  It takes time out of the Court’s schedule to have attorneys called before the Judge and then ask for time to go and speak with their clients.  All Judges want this done PRIOR to the Judge taking the bench.  At least 30 minutes or more is wasted per person when the Court has to wait on attorneys to contact their clients during the actual calendar call, and it disrupts the flow of criminal court proceedings and the Court’s time and resources.”
