COURT SCHEDULE FOR MAGISTRATE JUDGE VIRGINIA K. DEMARCHI

SPECIAL PROCEDURES DURING COVID-19 PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY

 

These procedures apply to all civil proceedings scheduled before Judge DeMarchi between March 16, 2020 and May 1, 2020.  Please note that these dates may be extended.

 

Please review General Order 72, which is posted on the Court’s website.  That order supersedes any contrary instructions in Judge DeMarchi’s standing orders or scheduling notes.

 

Motion Hearings and Case Management Conferences:  Motion hearings (including hearings on discovery disputes) and CMCs will be held telephonically using the Court’s telephone conference line.  The conferencing information will be provided by Clerk’s Notice and posted on the docket for each hearing or CMC, and the public will have access.  If a particular hearing or CMC must be conducted under seal, the Court will provide a separate security code to the parties permitted to participate in the proceeding, and the public will not have access.  If a case is not already designated as under seal, any party seeking to have a particular proceeding conducted under seal must file an administrative motion pursuant to Local Rule 7-11 to request that the public not be permitted access to the proceeding.

 

Settlement Conferences:  The Court will contact all parties currently set for a settlement conference before Judge DeMarchi during the affected time period to discuss whether the settlement conference can be postponed.  For those settlement conferences that cannot be postponed, the Court is exploring options for conducting settlement conferences by video conference.  Pre-settlement conference calls will continue to be conducted by telephone.  The Court will update the information posted here once more information on the feasibility of video conferencing is available.  The Court welcomes the parties’ suggestions, which may be communicated to the Court during the pre-settlement conference call or by emailing Patricia Cromwell, Judge DeMarchi’s Courtroom Deputy, at VKDcrd@cand.uscourts.gov.
