According to the new Civil Trial ramp-up plan, when a judge determines a case is ready for trial, that judge will submit a request to go forward with the new Civil Jury Trial form.
The form will include information such as the number of people who will be in the courtroom, when the court and counsel wish to begin trial, and whether the case is entitled to preference, nearing the five-year statute of limitations, or involves special circumstances otherwise warranting consideration for priority.
The Court has established procedures for trial judges to submit the Civil Jury Trial form depending on where the case is assigned. Counsel may provide input to the assigned judge in completing the form.
