NOTE:  Changes have been made to both the 2018 and the 2019 Court Calendars.  For 2018, the Ex Parte days in November and December have been changed and for 2019 the JASC dates have been deleted inasmuch as the legislature abolished the Judicial Advisory Study Committee earlier this year.  You can view these changes and obtain new court calendars above.
