Civil Cases

At any time after responsive pleadings and motions are due, the Court may schedule conferences or determine other matters that may aid in the disposition of the action. Rule 1.200(a)(13), Fla. R. Civ. P.

A Case Management Conference (hereinafter CMC) is scheduled for any matter that has been pending disposition with a lack of record activity. Rule 1.420 (e), Fla. R. Civ. P.

Once a CMC is scheduled, all parties to the action will receive an Order Setting CMC, which will be sent to the last address of record. This Order will include seven (7) possible actions (see a-g) to be taken in the case that may result in the cancellation of the CMC. All actions will require an Order of the Court or the setting and noticing of a final hearing with confirmation to be removed from the docket.

If the parties are unable to properly execute any of the seven (7) suggestions at least five (5) days prior to the CMC, the parties should be prepared to discuss the status of the case as well as present to the Court a reasonable timeline toward disposition. Failure to appear at the CMC may result in the dismissal of the case, striking of pleadings, limiting proof or witnesses, or such other appropriate action by the Court. Rule 1.200(c), Fla. R. Civ. P.
