Request for Oral Argument Form


* If you wish to participate in oral argument, you must file the attached form with proof of service on opposing counsel with the court within 15 days from the date of this notice. * If oral argument is requested, the case will likely be set for oral argument within the next six months. * Please notify the court of any dates you are unavailable to appear within the next six months, or thereafter if known, and we will try to accommodate your schedule. The form also specifies that notification of the date and time for oral argument will be sent to all parties electronically via the court's electronic filing service provider, True Filing. Parties are responsible for monitoring their email and mail for any notifications from the court. Any request for a continuance of oral argument must be made no later than 15 days after the date we email or mail the oral argument calendar to you. A request for a continuance submitted later will be considered only if it is necessitated by an emergency. Any request for a continuance must include a declaration stating whether opposing counsel agrees to or opposes a continuance. If you do not request oral argument within the time specified above, oral argument will be deemed waived. If oral argument is waived, the case will likely be submitted within the next six months. If your case settles after you receive the oral argument calendar, you must immediately notify the court by telephone. Failure to give timely notice of a settlement may result in the imposition of sanctions.
