Clerk's Dismissals

In order to have the matter removed from the Dismissal Eligibility List you must take an action of record (in court) or file a status report for each individual case (indicating the reason for the inactivity and projecting future activity and a case completion date.) 

Pursuant to Civil Rule 41(b)(2) cases will be dismissed or closed by the Court for want of prosecution upon motion and a hearing scheduled by the County Clerk.

At the time of mailing the Clerk’s Motion and Notice for Closure, a $30 dismissal fee will be assessed to the plaintiff/petitioner’s attorneys of record or self represented parties for failure to bring cases to completion because of failure to proceed or prosecute the case, appear for trial, failure to file a final order on settlement, failure to follow case schedule, failure to file final judgment or appeal following an arbitration award, lack of action of record, or failure to comply with court-ordered deadlines for reports.

The $30.00 fee will NOT be waived if the parties of record did not take the appropriate action pursuant to CR41(b)(2) PRIOR to completion of the Clerk’s Motion and Notice for Closure.

Courtesy to Litigants:

As a courtesy to litigants, the Clerk’s Office is providing the following list of cases which it intends to schedule for dismissal or closure after 30 days from the date the list is posted on our web site. Prior to then, if action of record to move the case forward or application made is in writing showing good cause why it should be continued as a pending case, no action will be taken and the $30 dismissal fee will not be assessed.  This list will be removed 30 days after posting and will be updated on a quarterly basis.

The $30.00 fee will NOT be waived if the parties of record did not take the appropriate action pursuant to CR41(b)(2) PRIOR to completion of the Clerk’s Motion and Notice for Closure.

If there is not a highlighted link below to download a "Clerk's Dismissal Eligibility List," a new one will be posted below when scheduled:
