The court hears motions Monday at 9:00 a.m. Tuesday thru Thursday at 8:45 a.m. All motions, stipulated or not, must be noticed for hearing. All motions must be filed with the Clerk’s office at least two working days prior to the date of the hearing of the motion. Counsel may contact chambers or the Courtroom Deputy after 4:00 p.m. on the afternoon before the scheduled motion day to see if an appearance is necessary. Unless the court has told a party it need not appear, counsel is expected to be present whether or not the motion is agreed. Parties who require an immediate hearing on any emergency matter should contact chambers (312 435 5636) for instructions on presenting the motion before Judge Pallmeyer or, in her absence, another judge.
