Requests for Protection from hearing dates and deadlines are not honored by the Court. Many matters are self scheduled and the volume of cases is too great to allow us to accommodate such requests. If counsel is unavailable on certain dates, counsel must determine whether any matters are scheduled for hearing and request a continuance, following Chambers Guidelines. Counsel must also determine the existence of deadlines for response and either file responsive pleadings before the deadline or seek an extension of time, where available. The Court will not respond to correspondence or emails requesting protection.
