Viewing Court Rules in your Calendar

You can view all of your Court Rules across all Matters from the main "Calendar" tab, or you can view the rules associated with a specific Matter from the "Calendar" sub-tab of that Matter. From either location, you can view saved rules, edit details, add reminders, and add time.

From the "Calendar" sub-tab of a Matter, you’ll notice that "Court Rule" events are labelled with a  icon.

These rules can be edited in the same manner as any calendar event by clicking the "Edit" quick link for the rule that you would like to edit, add a reminder to, or add time to. Similarly, if you need to delete an individual rule, you can click the "Delete" quick link. For instructions on how to delete all events in a rule set, click HERE.
