Under the rule, the Court and counsel must evaluate and formulate a case management plan within six months of the filing of the suit. The kinds of considerations mandated are at once basic, thorough and complete. It a case management conference order is prepared honestly, it will provide a valid itinerary, leading in an orderly fashion, to trial. The effective litigator will be able to plan and conduct discovery in even the most complex of cases with Court involvement limited to dispute resolution only. The savings in time and energy will certainly be significant to Bench and Bar alike. To facilitate the entry of such Order, the Clerk of the Circuit Court, Chris Kachiroubas, will assign two (2) dates when an applicable Law Division case is filed* There will be an initial status date set for approximately ninety (90) days and a case management conference date within 35 days after the parties are at issue and in no event more than 182 days following the filing of the complaint. Cases set for conference will appear on the call at 9:10 am. The case management conference order must be prepared in advance, signed by all counsel and presented for court approval at the case management conference. A form order will be available in the Clerk's office, and in each Law Division courtroom. A copy of the completed proposal order must be provided to the appropriate Judge seven (7) days before the case management conference. It is imperative that the order be prepared by knowledgeable counsel (either trial counsel or someone in direct contact with the trial counsel) so that the information contained on the order is accurate. It is anticipated that conferences between parties commence shortly after the status date to have the form completed and signed in a timely fashion. The parties will be bound by the representations made in that order. All parties must cooperate in the preparation of the order. The burden is on the plaintiff to present the order. If every reasonable effort has been made to obtain another party's cooperation in vain, the order will be entered without discovery being authorized for that recalcitrant party. Once the order is entered, discovery beyond the order will be denied, absent an order of Court based upon good cause shown for the modification. The form order is designed to provide sufficient space for the average Law Division case. If more space is needed, information should be typed on a blank page, identified by letter and number designation from the form and attached. * Under local Rule 8.03, adopted by Administrative Order 96-1, dated 01/03/96, SC and non-Jury AR cases are exempted from the requirements of SCR 218. Jury AR cases must be given a case management conference date with forty five (45) days of the rejection of award filing date, and will be set by the Judge before whom the jury trial is scheduled.
