S Divisional Instructions

Motions must be filed with the Clerk of Court before contacting the Judicial Assistant for scheduling.

All matters set for hearing shall be set through the Judicial Assistant, Gloria Lozano, NOT through the Clerk of Court. Send an email to glozano@pbcgov.org, with the NAME OF DEFENDANT and CASE NUMBER in the subject line. Please attach any motion and copy all parties on the email. Do not email the CAD box as this division does not utilize it.

Any motion requiring 30 minutes or more should be submitted to the Court with a cover letter stating the length of time requested for hearing. The Judge will review the motion and the Judicial Assistant will provide available dates. The parties should coordinate those dates with opposing counsel. ONCE A DATE IS AGREED UPON, THE MOVING PARTY SHOULD EMAIL THE JUDICIAL ASSISTANT TO SET THE DATE ON THE COURT’S CALENDAR. All motions must be filed with the Clerk of Court prior to contacting the Judicial Assistant for hearing times.

The Court greatly appreciates written responses on specially set hearings, with caselaw/authority provided 48 hours prior to the hearing, with courtesy copies provided via email to the Judicial Assistant to glozano@pbcgov.org, not the CAD box.

The Court does not set Calendar Calls. Generally, after an initial Case Disposition hearing after Arraignment, the case will be set for a Plea Conference or for Trial.
