Rule 4.13. List of approved, deficient and heard matters.

  • (a) Under the supervision of the probate judge, the probate commissioner must prepare a list of probate matters that are scheduled for hearing. Such list shall be finalized and posted on the probate court’s official website prior to 4:00 p.m. on the day prior to hearing.

    (b) The list shall designate each matter as being “approved” or requiring a hearing that is designated as “court’s discretion.” The list shall also indicate whether the hearing has been continued and the new hearing date.

    (c) In addition to the above, the list may, in the discretion of the probate commissioner, identify those cases scheduled for hearing that are deficient for hearing or determination and the basis for such deficiency to allow parties to correct such deficiencies prior to 12:00 p.m. on the day prior to hearing. The probate commissioner may then designate such matters as “approved” or as requiring a hearing.
