LCrRLJ 3.3 CONTINUANCE OF COURT DATES A. The court on its own motion or motion of the defendant or the prosecuting attorney may continue scheduled court appearance in the interest of justice or as authorized in CrRLJ 3.3(h). B. Upon agreement by both parties in writing, the Calendar Coordinator is authorized to continue a hearing without leave of court upon request of either party within two (2) weeks of the date of issuance of the notice for the hearing as long as speedy trial requirements are not violated. C. Any other request for continuance shall require appearance in court by the party or attorney requesting the continuance, at a date and time to be scheduled by the Calendar Coordinator. Unless both the parties stipulate to the continuance request, the objecting party must be given notice of the hearing by the requesting party. Upon good cause being shown, the court may permit an Agreed Order of Continuance to be submitted by the attorney for either party. D. The defendant must file a waiver of speedy trial if the continuance has the possibility of impairing the court's ability to schedule a trial within 60/90 days. E. In computing any period of time herein, the court adopts CRLJ 6(a), which by reference is made a part hereof. [Effective Date: 01/07/87; Amended 09/01/91; Amended 09/01/98]
