3. Why can’t I talk to the judges in private?

The justices can’t discuss your case with you without all of the parties being present because it would violate the ethical rules that judges must follow. It isn’t fair to let one side of a case try to persuade a judge without the other side having a chance to be heard. Anything you want a justice to know must be in writing, follow the rules of procedure and be filed with the Clerk’s Office.

4. When will my case be heard?
The Clerk’s Office doesn’t know when your case will be placed on an agenda. Agendas are posted on our web site at http://www.azcourts.gov/clerkofcourt/Agendas.aspx . Unlike trial courts, most of the cases in the Arizona Supreme Court are decided without a public hearing. You will receive a letter or e-mail when the court has made its decision.

5. Can I come to the hearing?

If the court decides a case should have argument, those arguments are open to the public. You or your attorney will be notified by letter or by email if there will be oral argument on your case. You can also find the court’s oral argument calendar at http://www.azcourts.gov/clerkofcourt/OralArgumentCalendar.aspx
