Preliminary Hearing Schedules

Administrative Magistrate Palmer creates the random preliminary hearing schedule for appointed counsel for the Delinquency Preliminary Hearings, and the Abuse, Neglect and Dependency Preliminary Hearings. The schedule for each round is prepared and distributed approximately 30 days before the expiration of the previous one. It is each attorney's responsibility to either trade dates or get other appointed counsel to cover their assigned date if they are unavailable. If counsel misses their assigned date, they will not receive a date the next round. Continued failure to make assigned dates will result in removal from the preliminary hearing schedule. Please notify the assigned counsel office either in person on the 5th floor or via telephone at 614-525-3248 with any trades or coverage changes.
