Trial Periods

Absent specific court order, juries are drawn every other Tuesday, unless otherwise noted. The trial periods listed are two-week segments. The schedule below outlines the dates set for upcoming calendar years. The initials indicate which judicial officers will be hearing cases during that trial period–JNL, Chief Judge Laplante; SJM, Judge McAuliffe; PJB, Judge Barbadoro; JAD, Judge DiClerico; LBM, Judge McCafferty; and AKJ, Magistrate Judge Johnstone. Except as otherwise noted on the calendar, Chief Judge Laplante and Judge Barbadoro hear cases during the first two-week period, Judge McAuliffe, Judge DiClerico and Judge McCafferty during the second two-week period.

Please note that the highlighted yellow dates are for jury selection and represent the start of a two-week trial period. No jury selections should be scheduled on any other dates without judicial order well in advance of the trial as a special notice will need to be issued to a jury pool. When choosing a trial date for inclusion in your Discovery Plan, please indicate: Two-week trial period beginning mo/day/yr. Use the first date listed as the "beginning" date. Do not choose the 2nd date, i.e., the start of the 2nd week. See Local Rules, Appendix of Forms, Civil Form 2.
