And Now, this 8th day of January 2015, It Is Ordered That Jeff.Co.R.C.P. 208.3 is hereby amended to add the following sentence to paragraph 1:

 The Court may nonetheless exercise its discretion to schedule argument or decide the motion or petition without argument.

It Is Furthered Ordered That existing paragraphs 2 and 3 shall be eliminated in their entirety and replaced with the following language:

 2. Whenever a party files a motion or petition, the Prothonotary shall forward a copy to the Court. In the case of preliminary objections, motions for judgment on the pleadings, and motions for summary judgment, the Court Administrator shall prepare a briefing scheduled advising the parties of the dates when their respective briefs are due. In the event a party does not receive a briefing schedule from the Court, the Pennsylvania Rules of Civil Procedure shall govern.

 3. Paragraph 1 notwithstanding, preliminary objections and summary judgment motions in debt collection and mortgage foreclosure cases shall be decided on the briefs alone.

It Is Further Ordered That Section B. Filing and Service of Briefs shall hereafter read as follows:

 All briefs, including a copy for the Court, shall be filed in the Prothonotary's Office and served on the other party(ies). No motions or petitions other than preliminary objections, motions for judgment on the pleadings, and motions for summary judgment will be assigned briefing schedules unless the Court deems it to be necessary in any given case.

 This Order shall become effective thirty (30) days after the date of publication in the Pennsylvania Bulletin.

By the Court
