NORTH CAROLINA IN THE GENERAL COURT OF JUSTICE CABARRUS COUNTY JUDICIAL DISTRICT 19-A LOCAL RULES OF PRACTICE - AMENDED CASE MANAGEMENT PLAN EFFECTIVE OCTOBER 1, 1998 The Case Management Plan and Local Rules of Practice are herein amended as the same are applicable in the Superior Court of Cabarrus County and are effectiv e as of October 1, 1998. Rule 17 - MOTIONS FOR CONTINUANCE - CRIMINAL CASES IN SUPERIOR COURT IN JUDICIAL DISTRICT 19 -A 17.1 Appropriate Judicial Official Prior to the opening of court for the session in which the case is calen dared, all applications for continuance shall be made to the Senior Resident Superi or Court Judge of Judicial District 19-A, or his designee.

The authority to decide all continuances prior to the opening of court r ests with the Senior Resident or his designee. This does abridge the trial judges right to hear and rule upon motions made the day of court or during a session. 17.2 Form of Motion All applications for continuance shall be by written motion made on stat e form AOC-CR- 1997, or any revised version of the form as provided by Administrative Office of the C ourts. 17.3 Notification of Opposing Counsel/Unrepresented Parties A copy of the completed form AOC-CR-1997 must be distributed to all counsel of record and/or unrepresented parties prior to presentation of the motion to the appropriate judicial official.

Generally, a written statement of the reasons for the motion is to be attached to the form or may be included within the form. If the District Attorney consents to the continuance and such consent is indicated by signature of the District Attorney on the continuance form, the continua nce is allowed and the continuance form shall be filed in the court file. If no District A ttorneys signature appears on the continuance form, the District Attorneys opposition t o the motion is presumed. If defense counsel consents to a motion for continuance by th e District Attorney and such consent is indicated by the signature of the defense attorney o n the continuance form, the continuance is allowed and the continuance form shall be filed in the court file. If no defense counsels signature appears on the continuance form, defen se counsels opposition to the motion is presumed. This rule recognizes the District Attorneys current statutory right to calendar cases. Motions which have the consent of the District Attorney and defense coun sel do not require presentation to a judicial official, but are deemed allowed. If there is opposition to the motion, the same is to be heard in open co urt on the first day of the session in which it is calendared unless otherwise stipulated in writing by the parties. RULE 18 - JUDICIAL DISTRICT 19 -A VACATION POLICY The following vacation policy shall apply in the Judicial District 19-A. 18.1 Attorneys may designate three weeks each calendar year as vacations peri ods during which they shall not be required to appear before the Superior Court in Judicial District 19-A. 18.2 That each attorney practicing in the Judicial District 19-A may designate such times either consecutively or at intervals 90 days or more in advance of such vacation periods unless a trial or other matter has already been set by a Presiding Judge . Thus, the designation of vacation time shall precede such setting and the attorney may be assured that the designated time shall be available for vacation periods. American LegalNet, Inc. www.USCourtForms.com<<<<<<<<<********>>>>>>>>>>>>> 3 18.3 Attorneys may designate periods by filing in the office of the Clerk of Superior Court of Cabarrus County a letter designating such weeks, and providing a file-stamped copy to the offices of the District Attorney and the Trial Court Coordinator. A copy of the letter shall be retained by the attorney marked filed which may be provided to j udges and opposing counsel to reserve the weeks designated as necessary. 18.4 The policy and procedures described herein are not exclusive. In extrao rdinary circumstances, the time limitations for notification of designated weeks may be waived by the court as have been done in the past when attorneys have been faced with particular or unusual situations and further, attorneys shall be able to make other requests t o be excused from appearing before a tribunal for personal and other reasons as has been t he custom in the past. This policy is adopted in recognition of the need for time away from the demands of professional responsibilities to improve the overall professional perfor mance of the bar as well as the quality of life of members of the profession and their families and this policy is adopted for that purpose. Except as amended herein, the Case Management Plan, effective July 1, 19 98, shall remain in full force and effect. This the ______ day of September, 1998. __________________________________________ W.
