As of January 2020, both Judges Lynch and Heston have updated their procedures with regards to shortening time for scheduling hearings. Generally, both judges discourage motions to shorten time. However, the motion to shorten should be filed simultaneously with the underlying substantive motion and should be filed ex parte with the unsigned order uploaded as well. In addition, the motion must include certification of the attorney’s efforts to notify opposing counsel of the motion to shorten time and reasons why no further notice is required.
