The Magistrate Judges set consolidated jury terms. This means that all the Magistrate Judges cases set during approximately a two-week period will have juries selected on a single date. The Magistrate Judges do not set cases seriatim during a term. Rather, a definite trial date is or will be set for each case. The dates listed below represent the dates for jury selection. Each day is a Monday unless the Monday is a holiday -- in which case jury selection may begin on the Wednesday following the holiday. Jury selection begins at 10:00 a.m.
