Trial & Hearing Confirmations
Snohomish County Local Court Rule 7 outlines the rules for confirming, striking or continuing a hearing. Motions for Summary Judgment set on the Judge’s Civil Motions calendar must be confirmed prior to 12:00 noon three (3) court days prior to the hearing; all other motions must be confirmed prior to 12:00 noon two (2) court days prior to the hearing. During the confirmation window, confirmations are accepted for a 24 hour period prior to the deadline, beginning at 12:00 p.m. When determining your confirmation deadline, do not count weekends or court holidays. If you fail to properly note and confirm your hearing timely, your motion will not be heard. See FAQ for a chart regarding when to confirm your hearing.

Our office is unable to provide confirmation that we have received and processed your confirmation. However, you many use Odyssey Portal to determine the status of the hearing. You do not need an account to view hearing information on non-confidential cases.
Working copies should be delivered by the confirmation deadline in order to ensure they are received by the judicial officer. We cannot guarantee, nor provide information as to whether a working copy was received and/or reviewed by a judicial officer.
Snohomish County Local Civil Rule (SCLCR) 40 (c)(1) provides that civil trials must be confirmed no sooner than noon on the first court day of the week and no later than noon of the last court day of the week two weeks prior to the trial date.
If you have any problems with confirming your trial, please contact the trial coordinator at 425-388-3421.
