Requesting a Continuance of a Court Date
A trial date may be postponed depending on the reasons given for the postponement. If you need to have the trial postponed, you must file a letter stating the reasons for your request. You should not consider the filing of a request for continuance automatically granted. It is within the Judge's discretion to whom your case has been assigned to determine whether the trial will be postponed.

Settlements Prior to a Court Date
If a small claims matter is settled prior to the date of the hearing scheduled, the plaintiff should promptly notify the Court in writing so that an Order may be entered and the matter removed from the Court’s calendar.
