Trial Practice and Protocol

Trial Schedule Oral Arguments and other hearings are generally held by video conference. Courtroom Etiquette Please be courteous to staff. They will assist you if they can, but remember they cannot answer legal questions.  
 
I strive to show respect to everyone who appears in my courtroom. Likewise, I expect courtesy and mutual respect between parties and attorneys.  
 
If you are self-represented, you can obtain assistance at the Self Service Center on the first floor of the East Court Building.
Other Courtroom Policies and Recommendations Whenever you file a document (motion, response, etc.) in a LCA case, please deliver a hard copy of the document to the LCA Division.  
 
If you are seeking a stay of a trial court’s decision, you must first seek a stay in the trial court. Only if the trial court denies the stay should you seek a stay in Superior Court.  
 
Before filing a Motion to Stay in Superior Court, first contact the opposing party to determine if the opposing party will stipulate to the proposed stay. If the opposing party agrees to so stipulate, please file a stipulation to that effect and lodge a proposed form of order. If the opposing party will not stipulate to the stay, include that information in your Motion to Stay.  
 
When you file a Motion to Stay, please deliver a hard copy of the motion to the LCA Division, along with a copy of the underlying Complaint/Petition for Special Action/Notice of Appeal. If the issue is time-sensitive, feel free to call or email the Division’s staff (at the phone number and email address listed above) to make sure that your Motion to Stay has been received.  
 
Before filing a motion for an extension of time to file a brief, response, or reply, first contact the opposing party to determine if the opposing party will stipulate to the proposed extension. If the opposing party agrees to so stipulate, please file a Notice of Stipulated Extension of Time. It is not necessary to file a motion or to lodge a proposed form of order.  
 
If the opposing party will not stipulate to the proposed extension, include that information in your motion for an extension of time.
