President Judge


Rule L 216.

   Except as hereinafter set forth, all motions requesting the continuance of any matter pending in the Court of Common Pleas of Bedford County shall be in writing setting forth the reason for the continuance and whether the opposing party or parties consent to the request. Except for continuance motions which arise during the hearing of a matter, all such motions shall be presented to the Calendar Control Judge through the Court Administrator for disposition. The Calendar Control Judge shall be designated by the President Judge. Motions for continuance which arise during the hearing of the matter in question shall be ruled upon by the assigned judge.

   No request for continuance presented to the Calendar Control Judge less than 48 hours before the time scheduled for the hearing of the matter in question will be granted, unless for good cause shown. Except for extraordinary circumstances, continuances will not be granted because of previously scheduled depositions, district justice hearings, or other like matters. In the event the request for continuance concerns a conflict with a matter scheduled in another court of common pleas, the request shall state which matter was scheduled first. Motions for continuance will be granted when a conflict arises with an appellate or federal court.
