Judge Waites is requesting assistance from the bar regarding compliance with the Consent/Dispute calendar procedures set forth in the Chambers Guidelines. In recent months, frequent failures to comply with these procedures have caused additional work for chambers and have required unnecessary interruptions. Please be advised that Judge Waites will more strictly enforce the procedures and will not excuse the appearance of parties at hearings if the procedures are not followed.

The Judge also requests that counsel timely respond to emails from chambers relating to an upcoming docket to better assist in his preparation for court.

The Judge believes that these procedures, if properly complied with, work effectively by providing accommodations, time and cost savings for the benefit of all parties. The ability to maintain them is dependent upon counsels' timely response to these requests.
