JACS Overview

The Judicial Automated Calendaring System (JACS) provides attorneys with a quick, reliable, and convenient solution to scheduling judicial hearings 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, through your web browser (internet). Calendars are set up for each judge with hearing times ranging from 5, 10, 15, 30, and 60 minutes. Attorneys can schedule, reschedule or cancel hearings based on available hearing times. You will receive a confirmation email each time you schedule a hearing, providing there is an email address associated with your account. The email includes a confirmation number, date of hearing, time of hearing, case number, type of hearing, and the courtroom location. Once the hearing is scheduled, use the confirmation number to make changes. When a hearing is changed, rescheduled or canceled, JACS generates a new confirmation number and you'll receive a new confirmation email.
