The purpose of these trial guidelines is to assist counsel and parties in preparing for trial and in presenting his or her case. Although some of the items are directed to jury trials, the guidelines, where appropriate, are intended to be applicable to bench trials or hearings. If you believe that a guideline is not practical or needs to be modified for a particular matter or if you have a question regarding a guideline, please bring it to the Court’s attention prior to trial. Counsel and parties are expected to be familiar with and comply with the Trial Guidelines.
