Benton County Superior Court operates on a master calendar system. As such, virtually all issues are heard on the various dockets. Special set hearings may only be scheduled at the direction of a judicial officer. Court Administration staff does not have authority to schedule a special set a hearing without the permission of a judicial officer.
Requirements: Pending adoption of a local court rule, the Court’s practice and policy is as follows: Contact Joseé Saldua at Court Administration to obtain a date and time for your hearing. Prepare, file and serve a Notice of Special Set & provide a copy to the Assistant Court Administrator, Joseé Saldua. Notices must be filed with the clerk, and copies emailed to Joseé Saldua
If you fail to comply with these requirements the special set will not be heard.
