On Line Scheduling for UMC, Special Set, and Trial Date Hearings

On Line Scheduling System allows for requesting and cancellation of UMC, Special Set, and Trial Date Hearings, via an online web based system.

The goals of this project are to allow users to self-set 8:45 motions, 15-30 minute Special Set Hearings, and Trial Dates; alleviate the necessity of calling judicial assistants to confirm, cancel or change hearings set on motion calendar and special sets.

Local Rule 10 A and all Florida Rules of Civil Procedure are not changed.


The online system is simply an electronic way of self - scheduling motions. All motions must have been filed before scheduling any hearing and a courtesy copy of the motion must be mailed to the Judge’s Judicial Assistant.
