Motion for Discovery Form

COURT APPEARANCE  

Since our prosecutor is part-time, he does not have set office hours for meeting with defense attorneys and our court does not have a formal “attorney plea docket”. The prosecutor does set aside 30 minutes prior to the start of the court to meet and discuss cases with attorneys. Some of your questions can be handled by the court clerk. Please feel free to call or email the court clerk with questions.

CONTINUANCES  

If a hearing needs to be continued, file a written motion accompanied with an order (both signed by you) to the court clerk at least 24 hours prior to the hearing. Please provide a list of dates when you are available for the new hearing, otherwise, it will be set for the next Court date. The motion and order can either be faxed or emailed to the court using the contact information provided at the bottom of the page.

WITHDRAW AS COUNSEL  

Should you desire to withdraw from a case, you should consult the Supreme Court Rule 117 and comply with its provisions.
