SWMCrRLJ 4.11 DUTY TO NOTIFY COURT AND WITNESSES When a case docketed for trial or other hearing is settled, or for any reason will not proceed to hearing at the set time, the parties shall give notice of that fact immediately to the Court. Notice to the Court should be in written form. Telephonic notice is acceptable where appropriate due to time constraints, provided that said notice is confirmed in writing. It shall be the duty of each party to notify it’s own witnesses, not only of the date and time of the trial, but also of continuances, pre-trial hearings, motions and other proceedings. The Court will not pay witness fees to witnesses who appear for a case which has been continued or settled without trial or hearing. Such costs shall be borne by the party or attorney who called or subpoenaed the witness. (Adopted effective September 1, 2000)
