Standing Orders

The Court reviews each case at its inception and determines its complexity and discovery needs. Based upon this review, the Court either enters a scheduling order or holds a status conference as described in paragraph 2. The Court uses a variety of standard pretrial orders depending on the nature of the case, all of which include a standard "Requirements for Joint Pretrial Statement." In a complex case, the Court may tailor a separate pretrial order to address particular matters in the case.
