2.6 SCHEDULING OF HEARINGS (a) Mitigation. Mitigation hearings may be conducted based upon written statements or requests. Pursuant to IRLJ 2.6(c) the court is not required to notify the parties of a date for the examination of the mitigation request. (b) Traffic Calendar. Infraction hearings shall be set on the traffic calendar unless a request for discovery has been made or the presence of the officer has been requested at which time the court date may be reset or set on the criminal calendar. (c) Tracking with Criminal Offenses. If the respondent is also charged with a criminal offense arising out of the same incident as that which gives rise to an alleged civil infraction, the hearing on the infraction may be scheduled at the same time as any hearing set for a criminal matter. (d) Infraction Continuances. A court clerk may grant one (1) request for a continuance via telephone. The continuance must be requested at least three (3) days prior to the scheduled hearing. Thereafter, all requests must be made in writing and will be approved only by the court and will be granted only where a clear showing of necessity has been made to the satisfaction of the court.
