Rule 245. Assignment of Cases for Trial (1976)


The court may set contested cases on motion of any party, or on the court's own motion, with reason­able notice of not less than 10 days to the parties, or by agreement of the parties. Noncontested cases may be tried or disposed of at any time whether set or not, and may be set at any time for any other time. With respect to a party who had no notice of setting of a contested case for trial, the provisions of Rule 329b governing motions for new trial and finality of judgments shall operate from the time of receipt of notice of rendition of the judgment; provided that the original motion for new trial shall in any event be filed within 90 days from the rendition of judgment.

Amended by order of July 22, 1975, eff. Jan. 1, 1976: The rule is rewritten to require notice of settings in county and district courts.
