A. Expedited Trial Calendar — Court's Expedited ERISA Docket

This Court has established an expedited trial calendar for use in appropriate cases where either both parties agree to an expedited trial or a party is able to convince the Court that an expedited trial is appropriate. For example, this Court uses the expedited trial calendar to set all ERISA collection cases for trial within three months of the filing of the complaint in order to reduce the costs to the parties in these particular cases. Any party seeking placement on the Court's expedited trial calendar should so indicate in the initial written joint status report.
