Final Pretrial Orders

The Court sets firm trial dates. All parties should be prepared to proceed on their trial dates. Filing dates not previously set in court may be obtained from the courtroom deputy.

For JURY trials, the Final Pretrial Order does NOT need findings of fact unless the parties agree and stipulate to the findings. FINAL PRETRIAL ORDER IN CIVIL TRIAL CASES
