The Plaintiff and Defendant should bring to trial all documents in their possession or under their control concerning this claim. Time does not permit trials in every case set on the first trial setting. Therefore, trials will be held as needed in eviction cases and such other cases where both parties are prepared for trial and time allows. 2. A default judgment may be entered against the Defendant if he or she fails to appear for a trial date, and if the Plaintiff fails to appear, the case will be dismissed (but may be refiled once more). 3.

Settlement forms may be obtained from the Court or from the website. The settlement shall be filed with the Court and will be entered in the Small Claims Docket and shall have the same effect as a judgment of the Court. 7.
