If a trial setting has been established by scheduling order after hearing the parties, the court shall decline to consider requests for continuance except those made by motion or when a judge determines that an emergency exists. A single request for a reasonable continuance of a trial setting set by notice without hearing should be granted by the court upon agreement of all parties, provided that the request is made within 21 days after notice of the setting to the parties. All other requests for continuance shall be made by motion with notice to all parties.
(Amended effective January 1, 2020.)
