TMCLR 3.4 RECALL OF WARRANTS AND RESETTING OF CASES A. If a defendant fails to appear for a hearing before the court and the defendant thereafter complies with each of the below listed requirements and pays an administrative processing fee of $100.00, the Clerk of the Court shall be ordered and authorized to recall the warrant, or if the warrant has not yet been processed, to not process the warrant, and the Clerk of the Court is further authorized to issue a new notice of hearing for the defendant. Requirements for Warrant Recall and Rescheduling: (1) The defendant shall personally appear and provide an explanation for his/her failure to appear for court and provide documentary support if appropriate. (2) The defendant shall not have had his/her warrant recalled previously in this manner on this particular case. (3) The Clerk of the Court shall include in the court docket language reflecting the defendant's failure to appear, the defendant's explanation for the failure to appear; and the Clerk of the Court shall insert in the court's file a copy of the documentary support for the reasons for the defendant's failure to appear. If all of the requirements listed above have been met, the Clerk of the Court shall recall the warrant or shall not process a warrant which has been ordered and not yet issued, and the Clerk of the Court shall issue a new notice of hearing. B. Warrants shall not be recalled by the Clerk of the Court, nor shall there be a delay in processing warrants unless each of the above requirements have been met, except as otherwise ordered by the court in open session, unless the defendant posts bail according to the court's current bail schedule or the schedule as outlined in CrRLJ 3.2 (m). The court's schedule shall supersede the schedule published at CrRLJ 3.2 (m). C. This method of recalling warrants and resetting cases shall not apply to Assault 4° (DV), DUI, Malicious Mischief (DV), or Violation of a Court Order or Harassment unless, for good cause shown, approved by the court in writing.
