Status Conferences

In cases that are subject to Civil Case Schedule Orders (See, LCR 4(c) for a list of exempted cases), status conferences are scheduled in the Civil Case Schedule Order. The status conference will occur, and participation is mandatory for all attorneys and self-represented parties, unless cancelled as provided in LCR 4.1. A link to the form for cancelling and confirming status conferences is below.


The plaintiff or plaintiff's attorney is responsible for initiating the call for all parties.

The plaintiff or plaintiff's attorney must get all parties on the line and then call Court Administration.  Call 509-736-3070.  (Should you receive a voice mail message, please hang up and immediately call back to reach court staff.  The court has only one conference call line and if two or more calls are received at the same time the voicemail feature is automatically activated.)


NOTICE:  Parties are encouraged at any time to contact the Civil Case Manager to schedule a telephonic status conference to assist the parties in resolving case scheduling problems, including requests to change the trial date.
