In addition, the Court will not grant a request by the moving party on a motion.

After consideration of the request by the Court, an order will be issued approving or denying the request. If the request is granted, the parties are directed to contact Court Call Phone Conferencing at (866) 582-6878__ in advance of the hearing to schedule a telephonic appearance.
